Today’s show is an encore from April 30, 2019. Father Matthew will be back from Rome, tomorrow!
Growth for the Church; Holiness is a good ‘infection’; Seal of Confession; Marriage Prep
- The Primary Way of Growth for the Church: our example, especially through our participation in the Mass. When we take care to reverently celebrate Mass, our lives improve (even through trials and tribulation!). There are no downsides to holiness.
- Past performance affects confidence: in the spiritual life, remember how God has worked in your life in the past, to bolster your confidence and trust in the future.
- Seal of confession: California laws (CA SB360) attempting to eliminate protections for clergy.
- Marriage prep: in states that require minimal prep, divorce rates are lower.
