Father Simon Says – January 19, 2022 – The Violent Bear It Away

1 Sm 17:32-33, 37, 40-51

  • Father explains why the David and Goliath story is important to him

Father talks about the sinful anger of our times


  • Why did God put the tree in the garden?
  • Why does Jesus use David as an example to prove what he is doing is OK?

Word of the day: Violent


  • I disagree with Father’s point on anger; is it always a sin? What does he think about that point?
  • At the end of daily morning mass I asked the daily mass goers not to be late for mass. Was this out of anger?
  • There’s a passage in bible regarding Sodom/Gomorrah, can you help me with a dispute I’m having with a friend?
