Are - Who we Serve
The Serenellians are an informal group of Catholics, both lay
people and religious, who have chosen to dedicate and devote some
personal level of effort through prayer, work or exhortation to:
1) Combat and counter the evils of pornography addiction by asking God
through prayer to bestow on our society an ever increasing
abundance of the graces of Purity, Humility and Love of God – the
three virtues dearest to our Blessed Mother, in order to bring
about a renewal of these virtues in the world and, thus, hasten
the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the kingdom of her
2) Reach out to suffering souls, both individuals and their
families who are caught up in the addictive effects and
consequences of pornography, in order to bring them hope,
encouragement, strength and increased confidence in God’s infinite
love, compassion and mercy, for their healing, consolation and,
most importantly, for their salvation.
The level of effort, participation, support and involvement is up
to the individual. We have no dues or fees – only needs. We
exist only to spiritually serve the suffering souls found
wallowing in the mire of impurity, infidelity and the rotten
fruits of concupiscence.
Our Role Models
Our Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph are the most exemplary models
of purity, humility and loving fidelity to God. They set the
standards for what we as husbands and wives, fathers and mothers,
workers and children should strive to be within the context of our
daily, ordinary lives.
As such, the Serenellians place themselves under the patronage of
the Holy Family, because it is the family itself that has been,
for so long, the focus of the brutal and relentless attack from
What better mentor to have for our apostolate than Alessandro
Serenelli, an individual who, early in his youth, became entangled
in the snares of impurity, immorality and depravity. A man who
committed murder in the act of trying to satisfy his carnal
desires, yet he became, through the intercession of his victim,
Saint Maria Goretti, a converted soul, a champion and model of the
purity, humility and love of God that he so adamantly rejected and
opposed earlier in life. He is truly a man like so many of us.
If a man so seemingly wicked, decadent and corrupt as Alessandro
Serenelli can receive the fullness of conversion and salvation
from Almighty God, then so can each and every like soul caught up
in the snares of this insidious evil.
Since the vast majority of our ministry is prayer, we will
constantly communicate urgent prayer intentions to our members as
well as post prayer requests on our web site prayer wall.
Pertinent spiritual meditation topics will be communicated as well
to our members in order to remind and encourage our members of the
focus and intent of the spiritual battle against impurity and
immorality that we have accepted to engage.
A newsletter is a natural outcome of this type of ministry.
Plans and further details will be communicated as we get closer to
publishing our first newsletter.
