Evaluation of Conflicts in Self-Giving

Letter to Priests

Dear Father,

We are pleased to relate that the New Catholic Encyclopedia has allowed us to post my contribution to an article on the challenging pastoral issue of masturbation.   The psychological conflicts that influence this compulsive habit and their resolution are described. 

We hope this article will assist you in your vital priestly ministry, particularly to those with serious difficulties with pornography.
