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!
