On this episode of From the Pulpit, how often do we think of the venial sins we commit and meditate upon how even the smallest of sin offends Almighty God beyond our ability to comprehend? Are we the type of Catholic that falls into the trap and the common condition to believe that as long as we are not committing mortal sin, that we are doing just fine? Are we truly striving for Heaven, or are we simply content with trying to "make it" to purgatory?
Do we use the sacrament of penance fervently and devoutly, examining our consciences and doing our best to make a good confession so as to allow the floodgates of grace to shower upon our souls the great gift of absolution so that we may advance in the spiritual life and in the love of God, or are we making lukewarm, tepid, or worse yet - bad confessions?
On this week's episode of From the Pulpit, we welcome Father Charles McGuire, assistant pastor of St. Hugh of Lincoln Catholic Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as he speaks to us about these germane subjects that Catholics should never tire of hearing.
