Welcome to the blog of Catholic Men Basic Training.

We focus on creating courses that help men break free from pornography and grow to be able to love.

For this first post I want to highlight two new books that have come out to help Catholic men in their battle to be pure.

Cleansed

Marcel Lejeune just came out with Cleansed: A Catholic Guide to Freedom From Porn. Marcel has done college ministry for a long time and has been doing excellent work at my alma mater, Texas A&M, for many years. As a result of his work and the other good people there. A&M's Catholic student center is the premier example of the abundant fruit that faithfulness to Christ and His Church brings.

Marcel already wrote a book focused on stories of how the Theology of the Body has helped people get "set free to love", and now he has written Cleansed to focus on helping Catholics win free from pornography. This book is a great practical guide for taking actions that will help you conquer porn compulsion.

Freedom

You should also check out Everett Fritz's new book, published by Ignatius Press, called Freedom: Battle Strategies for Conquering Temptation.

Everett works in youth ministry and is a speaker on how young people can (or avoid!) porn addiction. He has also worked on YDisciple for the Augustine Institute and has a Master's degree from there.

Topics in his book include:

  • The crisis of manhood facing our modern culture
  • Why true masculinity is rooted in sexual purity, virtue, and sacrificial love
  • How to heal from sexual addiction through a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit
  • A step-by-step process for developing the disciplines needed to win the battle against temptation

So check out those two new titles from two great Catholic men!
