Patrick continues the conversation about confession from the first hour and he answers listener questions about where in the bible it says we should confess our sins to a priest, if we should be looking for spiritual direction while in a confessional, and he responds to an email that says this show is all “doom and gloom”
(00:19) Where in the bible does it say we are supposed to confess to a priest?
Lynn – Is confession the appropriate time to look for spiritual direction or should we be considerate of others in line for the sacrament?
Jude – Confessing our sins to each other and a lot of people confess their sins to a bartender.
Cynthia – My protestant friend has a dead person’s ashes but really wants the urn that the ashes are in. How do I explain to him that he shouldn’t just dump out the ashes?
Patrick shares news of a new book of prayers for laypeople ministering to the sick will be out soon
Sam – Is it okay to pray to someone who is not an official Saint declared by the Church?
Chris – Is someone falls into mortal sin, do the good things they did before falling into sin matter anymore (assuming they repent of their sin)?
Patrick responds to an email that describes him as all “doom and gloom”
Steve – How do I defend the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist to a protestant friend of mine?
Tim – Why does it say two thieves reviled Jesus in Matthew and Mark, but in Luke there was a Good Thief?
