89 Healing Your Soul Through Sacramental Confession

89 Healing Your Soul Through Sacramental Confession

December 2, 2022

In this episode I discuss what is the sacrament of confession, and address some of the main objections against having to confess our sins to a man. I explain the difference between “perfect contrition” and “attrition” or “imperfect contrition”, and how the sacrament of confession changes our attrition to contrition. I present the example of St. John Vianney (the Curé d’Ars), which is a really amazing example for priests.

82 How Can Daily Mass Benefit You?

82 How Can Daily Mass Benefit You?

October 14, 2022

The Eucharist is like a Furnace of Love. The Sacred Heart of Jesus is there, offering Himself for our salvation, worshipping God the Father, praying for us, and giving thanks for so many blessings we receive. When we receive Jesus—this Furnace of Love—in communion, our love is increased, and we receive all the graces necessary to become holy. Today we talk about why it will benefit you to attend mass and receive Communion frequently!

81 You Can Visit Mount Calvary Every Week!

October 7, 2022

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to go to Mount Calvary, in Jerusalem, where our Lord was crucified, and there pray and bring to God all our intentions and concerns? Don’t people pay lots of money to go there? Well, we can do that without going so far. Whenever we attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we are as it were, at the foot of the Cross, being present at the very same sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, although offered in an unbloody manner.
