Confession (Part 1)

This week’s podcast comes to us from “The Reason for Our Hope Foundation” which was started by Fr. Larry Richards. Fr Larry's main purpose is to teach us the rich and wonderful truth about our Catholic faith, whether we want to hear it or not.

Lent is about bringing us closer to God and in this time of 40 days we, as Catholic Christians, renew our faith through the example of Christ who was tempted in the wilderness, but never gave in to that temptation. As Catholic Christians, we are often tempted by this secular world and for the times that we allow those temptations to lead us to sin, confession is there to help us renew our covenant with Christ and to build a stronger and more loving relationship with Him.

In this two part podcast you will learn why we should tell our sins to a priest, what sins Catholics need to confess to a priest, and what the benefit of confession is in our daily walk with Christ. Fr. Larry's "Confession" talk was instrumental in my reconversion back to the Catholic faith. That is why it gives me great pleasure to present one of his "life changing" talks to you this week. I hope this talk will change your life as much has it has changed mine.

Note: When this podcast is finished, please go to Confession (Part2) to finish this two part talk.

“Your Life will be changed forever” (quote by Fr. Larry Richards)

Archbishop Fulton Sheen Podcast #5

In last weeks podcast, Archbishop Sheen discussed conscience and how we, as Catholics, sometimes rebel against the teachings of the Church in faith and morals because we are usually committing the very sins we are rebelling against. The fact that someone is not in a state of grace, due to sin, seems to be justification enough to attack the teachings of the Church. This attack, which has the ultimate goal of supporting those who want to continue in their sinful actions, ultimately separates a person from God's grace. The further one goes into sin, the more adamant that person seems to be in their attack of the faith, as the lady in Archbishop Sheen's example from last week clearly shows us.

To combat the attacks against the Church we must learn our faith, pray for people who are currently in mortal sin, and live the faith to the fullest, so people can see a great example of how God's love and grace works in the everyday actions of life. Please pray for all who attack the Church, that they may see the light of truth, repent, and come back home!

In this next podcast, Archbishop Sheen will give his second talk on Good and Evil. This is his second talk on the subject and somehow I feel it is a fitting follow-up to last weeks podcast. We need the politicians, priests, and laity still proclaiming that such intrinsically evil things like abortion, same sex marriage, and contraception, are rights granted to the populous, have to realize that what they are doing is supporting evil, no matter if they themselves do not believe in it. This support automatically separates them from the Grace of God!

God bless you all!

Archbishop Fulton Sheen Podcast #4

This talk has been a long time coming, I feel. With Catholic politicians like our current vice president, along with lay Catholics and clergy in the United States who claim to be practical Catholics publicly, yet continue to vote for and/or support such intrinsically evil things like abortion, contraception, and same sex marriages, etc. need to really listen to this talk by Archbishop Sheen. In this 4th installment of the life is worth living series Fulton Sheen addresses “Conscience” and the choices we make to let us “open the door from the inside” to let our conscience in.

In retrospect, with so many Catholics who voted for and continue to support Obama and his Pro-Death stance, I should have put this podcast up before the election, but I feel it is time to do so now. With our tax dollars, this administration is sending money to Mexico to fund abortion and allow for distribution of contraception, even while millions of Americans are without homes or have lost their jobs due to our economic crisis. Politicians, who claim to be Catholic, voted to continue this aid to Mexico (only 6 of the 24 Catholic senators actually voted to stop it)*.

Just for the record, all you Catholics out there who deny any part of the Catholic teaching in faith and morals have automatically been excommunicated from the Church. In order to be in communion with the Church again, you must go to confession and repent. This form of excommunication is called excommunication “Latae Sententiae” and is automatic, no Priest or Bishop needs to tell you that you have been excommunicated. You, as a Catholic, upon any “Post baptismal denial of the faith” have automatically separated yourself from the Church. For more information on Excommunication Latae Sententiae you can visit the following sites to know more:

Thanks to all the supporters of Prop. 8

Please thank all the people who made a difference on Prop. 8 in California. The Mormons donated $190,000, The Knights of Columbus donated $260,000 and the list goes on and on. There are many other individuals listed on the link above who donated as well and wants to thank each and everyone who stood up for what is right despite the backlash that they may receive for doing so. Standing up for true family values (and Christian values in general) is hard in this secular world, but because of supporters like you, Christians everywhere won a decisive victory in California! The dedication and monetary support of all the people listed on the link has finally allowed California to say definitively that marriage is between a "man and a woman" and I personally thank each and every one of you true soldiers for Christ!

To close this tribute to all the true defenders of faith and morals, I would like to leave you all with a quote from Fr. John Corapi from his talk entitled Surrender is Not an Option! In it he states very eloquently that “It is Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!"

May God bless you all!
