September 6th Readings Reflection: Wednesday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time
My wife and I do not understand how any psychiatrist or psychologist could work without Christ. You can't heal people without addressing their spirits. Salvation is healing; a salve.
I look at venial sins as like a rust, slowly weakened the metal, and if not cleaned, sender eventually it take over the whole piece, turning a good strong metal into a fragile one.
We are fortunate presently in my parish to have two priests who believe and teach as you have in this reflection. In fact the two pastors before them and their vicars did also. However it hasn't always been so since Vatican II. I do not blame V II, but those who used it as an excuse to water down the faith. It seems a watered down faith is in vogue in many parishes, so lets us pray faithfully and daily for all priests and bishops for their good, ours and the whole Church!
