Was there a good point or two in the sermon you heard for your Mass of Sunday obligation?
Let us know.
I spoke about frequent examination of conscience, principle faults, confession of sins in kind and number, and making plans to deal with them. I explained that temptations and struggles are not sins. You sin when you give in to the temptation. Temptations can be moments of grace. We have to have a plan for when we are struck by our temptations towards principle faults. We have to be willing to suffer during the temptation.
