- Betsy – Thank you for speaking about the scandals it needs to happen so we can protect people. (36:08)
- Bernadette – I was abused when I was a child and I appreciate you talking about what you did. I had a lot of issues because of the abuse.
- Sharon – I was told that at the end of the Our Father, it was supposed to be translated as ‘the Evil One’. Is that true and if so where can I find it?
- Diane – My son has been away since the priest scandal. (21:21)
- John (email) – Why don’t people understand that keeping malfeasance in the shadows is not good?
- Jennifer – What do you think of the book ’50 reasons why Jesus came to die’ by John Piper?
- Yvonne – If I try to help with the Church I need to be in good standing with the Church but some people who are not in good standing are able to help. Why is that? I was told I was being judgmental when I asked my parish priest about this.
- Elizabeth – I watched a Lutheran homily and was interested in the differences in the understanding of confession. Why do we have penances in confession?
