Christ on the Cross Embraces All: Gays, Fornicators, and Porn Addicts Too!
I
think this is a remarkable painting for several reasons: first of all, Christ
seems to be truly embracing the Cross; but, its more intense than a simple
embrace, it is a sort of cherishing and muscular hold; a grip of sheer Love and
fortitude; He is holdi...

With Sexual Addictions - The Greatest Virtue Is Humility
In
the battle for chastity, strength and courage are often mentioned as powerful
weapons. Yet, I believe that humility is the greatest virtue of all. It’s the ability
to break down our walls, barriers, and shields in front of Christ – and to
allow Him to en...

Gays, Porn Addicts, and Porn Stars at Jacob’s Well
Now
Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore being wearied with his journey, sat
thus on the well. It was about the sixth hour. There

Movie Review: Mary of Nazareth
First of all: St. Joseph is very precious to me. May the Lord forgive me, but at one time in my life - he was more important to me than Jesus. This took place because so much of my hurt and alienation stemmed from a severe wound in the misalignment of my ma...

How The Way of the Cross Helped to Save the Life of an Ex-Gay Porn Star
Good Friday -2014. When
the Lord Jesus Christ saved me from the pits of hell, I knew the rest of my
life would be totally different, but I really didn’t know where to go or what
to do. After I was fit enough to travel, I did make my first trip to Confession...

When You Want to Look at Porn or Masturbate – Look for the Cross
“Besides
vocal prayer, mental prayer, commonly called meditation, cannot but prove
helpful in the practice of chastity. For the Holy Ghost tells us in Holy Write:
‘In all thy works remember the last end and thou shalt never sin’ (Ecclus.
7:40). It would be ...

Movie Review: The Time Machine (or the Triumph of Masculinity in a Neutered World)
Ever
since I was a little boy, one of my favorite films has been “The Time Machine”
(1960.) The movie was really the last great adventure picture before the advent
of the over-sexed spy films, introduced by “Dr. No” in 1962, and the later introspective

The Enslavement to Sin Shows on Our Faces
St Therese once said: “The face is the mirror of the soul.” Looking back, my soul was lost, sick, and completely dark. The three photos above are from my time in the porn industry and the gay lifestyle: from very early in my career, to near the end when I w...

Introduction

Joseph Sciambra was born in 1969, in Northern California, not far from San Francisco. He grew up in a stable and loving home while attending Catholic parochial schools from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Early on, the dark shadow of pornography would cloud his entire childhood and teenage years. Throughout the 1990s, Joseph lived around the homosexual culture of the Castro District, offering him rare insight into the daily lives and struggles of many gay men. Later, he became an amateur porn actor and escort. In 1999, following a near death experience, Joseph returned to the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Since then he has written extensively concerning the real-life issues of pornography, homosexuality, and the occult. He received his BA from the University of California at Berkeley in Art History and his MA from Sonoma State University.
