  • Therese – My friend’s husband wants to convert to the Catholic Church. RCIA are saying he can’t join until next year, what should they do?
  • Mark – I heard it was traditional to accuse one’s self of one’s own sins in the Church. Was that ever a thing? Patrick recommends The Devil’s Role in the Spiritual Life: St. John of the Cross’ Teaching on Satan’s Involvement in Every Stage of Spiritual Growth” by Cliff Ermatinger
