The Diocese of Allentown has recommitted itself to raising awareness of the destructive effects of pornography, as well as offering resources for prevention and healing, through the formation of the “Lumen Christi Commission.”

Bishop of Allentown Alfred Schlert met Jan. 14 with the newly established commission, steered by Father Allen Hoffa, pastor of St. Joseph, Summit Hill, and several of its 12 members. The commission was given the name “Lumen Christi” meaning “Light of Christ.”

“I established the Lumen Christi Commission to help in the pastoral planning of addressing the burgeoning issue of pornography,” said Bishop Schlert.

“Unfortunately, pornography, through technology, is so readily accessible that there is no age, gender or social demographic that is immune from its deadly influence. Pornography exists in darkness, but the Light of Christ can conquer it by grace and forgiveness.”
