The courageous Shelley Lubben has organized The Pink Cross Foundation to help sex industry workers, former porn actors, and pornography addicts. Despite much persecution, she continues to fight against the sleaze machine that daily grinds out the perversion which will eventually entrap and enslave millions. She kindly agreed to post a short essay dealing with my conversion back to the Catholic Faith. This arrives at the end of a difficult struggle. For almost a decade, I believe the Lord has been calling me to make my story public. But His will in not mine. I would rather remain silent and safe. Like one of my heroines: St. Mary Magdalene, after the death of Jesus, and she fled to a cave in France, I have led a very quiet and secluded life since leaving the world of pornography. This was mostly by choice. After almost dying in sin, I felt shell-shocked. It was as if I were a lost and wandering soul suddenly thrown back into a body that I once occupied years before. I didn’t know what to do. Thankfully, Jesus allowed me rest upon his shoulder. Over the past couple of years, the call to speak out against pornography has been increasing. I could no longer duck and hide. With strength from God, I sat down in front of the computer and began to write. I couldn’t remember much. I asked God to guide my efforts; and He did. The Holy Spirit healed my mind, and returned those long buried memories. My prayer is that I can have my work published, so that others, especially the young, may not make the same foolish mistakes that I made.
