RECLAIM offers an opportunity to experience real spiritual growth and healing through encouragement in the use
of sacraments and faith practices, membership in a strong faith community, and the power of intercessory prayer.
Anyone caught in the grip of unhealthy sexual behaviors is living a life contrary to God's plan for humanity.
RECLAIM God's Plan for Your Sexuality!
Your unhealthy sexual behaviors are based on a specific way of thinking and behaving that has developed over time through repetition. But these behaviors do not define who you truly are! You are a child of God, loved unconditionally by your Heavenly Father. You have dignity and worth beyond measure.
God has given you a way out of these unhealthy sexual behaviors.
No trial has come to you but what is human. God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength;
but with the trial he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it. -1 Corinthians 10:13
The recovery journey will require dependence on Christ as you let go of the old habitual, unhealthy behaviors
and begin new behaviors that are pure, healthy and life-giving. Trust in God's plan is critical to your recovery.
Everything you need to be completely and permanently free of unhealthy behaviors is already built-in to the very structure of your brain by your Creator, in combination with God's grace given in the sacraments and other faith practices. RECLAIM resources and the Online Recovery Program can teach you how to use this way out.
Theology Of The Body
Sex is sacred and profoundly human because it was created by God. To understand the spiritual connection and divine purpose of sexuality. RECLAIM incorporates Theology of the Body as presented by Pope St. John Paul II.
The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is the only approved apparition site in the United States.
The only National Shrine of Saint Joseph is in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Both Shrines are located near Elizabeth Ministry International RECLAIM's Headquarters in Kaukauna, Wisconsin.
If you come for a RECLAIM Retreat, Consultation, or Intensive, we encourage you to visit these local Shrines.
During the approval process of the Shrine Of Our Lady Of Good Help, Bishop Ricken was inspired by the Holy Spirit to declare it a place for healing of sexual sins. He therefore consecrated RECLAIM to the advocacy of Our Lady Of Good Help.
Our Lady of Good Help,
We unite in prayer to consecrate to you the RECLAIM Sexual Health ministry. We entrust this program to your love and to your intercession for our Lord's mercy. We pray for your Good Help to be present in the lives and the homes of all those who suffer sexual addictions-- to bring them healing, to reclaim their spirit and their thinking, to understand that we are made in the image and likeness of God, and that he has given his plan for intimate love within the security of family. May our renewed efforts to combat the evils of pornography and all sexual addictions, lead all people to the Holy Family with Jesus as the center of lives and homes. Together we pray for God's blessing on the ministry of RECLAiM, in the name the Father, and of the Son, † and of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Prayer of Consecration for RECLAIM Sexual Health
