I was the last person to use the computer, googling pool cleaners, and then my son told me that all of my children were in the car ready to go, so I got up and we walked out together. We drove to the religious goods store, where I bought a communion veil and a miraculous medal. While I was out, the Devil used my computer. I don’t know how, but when I came home and opened my browser, I opened to a really, really graphic and horrible series of images.
I grilled my son, who reminded me that he came in and got me off the computer before we left.I am saying prayers of thanksgiving that it was me who opened the browser, because any one of my children could have been the next to move the mouse, heading to Starfall or PBS kids, or just to write a Seton English paragraph about St. Josaphat.
I am praying that the Lord would scrub those images from my mind, and also hoping that you can help me to find the best technology to make sure that this never happens again, by accident or through temptation as my children get older.
I thought I didn’t need to lock down my computer yet because my children were too young, but now I think that we all need to do it, immediately. I’m sorry to be alarmist, but no one should ever, ever see what I just saw.
