We had the grace of having Fr. Roger O'Neill celebrate the Holy Mass at Monastery of our Lady of Alcobaca. Please give a listen to his words of wisdom which reminds us of how the Act of Contrition need to be understood as a whole. That is to shun both presumption and despair!
During my retreat in Fatima, it was common to find the Irish priests in the pub late at night, sharing in fraternity. And one of their traditions is to sing. So I got to record bits and pieces of their songs.
Please enjoy if you'd like to listen. There is 30 minutes of it...haha
Just as a note of interest, I mention that God is angry with priests "right now." It was an inserted joke because as I was preaching we heard a loud crack of thunder in the Church which wasn't picked up while recording it. That is why people laughed.
God gave us 2 simple commandments, yet because of original sin, we are addicted to our pride. Lets examine how the seven deadly sins are the contradiction of God's call for us to Love Him above all else, with everything we are, and to love Him in our neighbour.
