Contrition, Forming Conscience in Confession, Faith of Youth, Sunday of Rest 9.6.19

  • Father Stephen joins the show. Contrition: being sorry; and committing to try to not sin again. God can’t forgive your sins if you’re not sorry. Perfect contrition: sorry for my sin, because I love God. Imperfect contrition: sorry for my sin out of a fear of Hell/eternal damnation/consequences of our actions.
  • Can you confess a sin without contrition? Can a priest ask questions during confession?
  • Cecilia joins Father Matthew and Father Stephen: are youth sinking into despair? 
  • How can Sunday be a day of rest for priests?
