  1. Siculum says:

    I probably need to be skinned alive.

  2. SKAY says:

    Thank you Father.

  3. Laura R. says:

    For some reason I can’t get it to play out the full length — I keep getting cut off after 30 -60 seconds or so. I liked the first bit I heard but now am curious what prompted Siculum’s response!

    Laura R:
    “Sorrow [for sin] is an intention to abandon the ego. It is hard. Sometimes it is like being skinned alive, peeling away sins and getting rid of some of them, taking on the firm purpose of amendment…I believe that most people are sorry for their sins not just because they dread the loss of heaven and fear hell, it is because they have hurt our Lord. After all, it is the Cross that reveals the dimension of sin. No one ever thoroughly sees sin in its utter nakedness until he understands redemption. Take the errors and the stupidity and the crimes of every day. People summarize them by saying, “Oh, what a fool I made of myself!” There is a world of difference between that and, “Oh, what a sinner I am!”
    Fulton J. Sheen, Audio Tape, “Penance”

    Thanks, Jameeka!

    I’d like to read/hear more from Bishop Sheen.
