Lastly we discuss purifying ourselves of venial sins and why **attachments** to lawful pleasures are harmful and dangerous to the soul. Of course we touch on the Gospel, listener emails

We also share our personal reflections on EWTN foundress , Mother Angelica, on this 3rd anniversary of her passing. We continue our Lenten Series review of Introduction to the Devout Life by delving into making a general confession. Our sins, if we are humble, will be infinitely offensive to us since God is offended by them while to accuse ourselves of our sins becomes sweet and pleasant since God is thereby honored. We discuss taking Catholicism to the streets. When the Deacon kicks us out of the Holy Mass, we are charged with spreading the Gospel. We also discuss balancing our wonder and awe of God. We shouldn’t trivialize Him or turn Him into an angry despot. Of course we also touch on the Gospel and listener emails.

Catholicism is rooted in the directives given by Christ and today the hosts hit on several topics which can be hard for Catholics and Protestants alike to understand. Just what would happen in an assisted suicide of a Catholic – and what are the long-term effects on the loved ones of that person? Exorcism prayers used to be part of the baptismal sacrament. Monsignor Pope offers the meaning behind them, and why they could be making a comeback. The team also takes a look at the sacrament of confession to address the frequently asked question, “Why do we confess to a priest, and not directly to God?”. A meditation on judgement is part of the on-going Lenten series, so grab your cup of coffee and join us for all this and more on Morning Glory!
