What is RESTORE? It is a safe confidential place to find healing and hope for men who have been wounded by pornography.
Why RESTORE? Pornography is hurting many people, including marriages and families, singles, priests and religious, and even children. It hurts the healthy process of vocational discernment for our young people. Pornography use impacts the relationships of children with their parents, husbands with their wives (and vice versa), the pastor with his community, and most importantly, our relationship with our Lord.
How can RESTORE help marriages and fathers? Many couples put on a “happy face” when they sit in the pews each week at Mass, but inside, there is often a mess that has been getting worse year after year because of how porn has harmed them in the past or is presently causing destruction. Sometimes it hits a breaking point.
Statistically speaking, people mention pornography as one of the main causes of divorce in 56% of the cases. There are consequences to pornography use. And because of this, there is a great need to continually provide resources to combat the evil of pornography.
The damage that pornography is doing to families all over the world is saddening, but we know that with the grace of God, freedom from this scourge can be (and has been) found.
For these reasons as well, RESTORE exists.

Create in Me a Clean Heart from the USCCB
We here at Restore are so deeply appreciative of the pastoral letter the United States Catholic Bishops (USCCB) released, Create in Me a Clean Heart: A Pastoral Response to Pornography.
The letter is unambiguous about the damage—both spiritual and otherwise—that pornography is wreaking upon our country. At the same time, it is profoundly merciful to those of us who have found ourselves caught in its snare. The bishops go beyond pointing out the destruction caused by pornography—our shepherds offer us practical advice for combatting it.
