Enjoy this week’s podcast on the Pastoral Letter by Archbishop Cordileone in which I comment on common responses by Catholics who opt to excuse themselves from such basic teachings as the Sanctity of Human Life.
We are moved by the faith of the Leper in approaching Jesus, the compassion of Jesus in curing the Leper; but are we all that impressed with the Leper’s subsequent disobedience to Jesus command? Fr. Bill discusses the often overlooked aftermath of Jesus cure of the Leper in the Gospel of Mark; an aftermath that has grave and serious repercussions for the ministry of Jesus, and serves as a sobering example of the importance of God’s Law, and our obligation to obey.
How and why does Abortion especially apply to the 5th Commandment and what is the gravity for one who has incurred a completed abortion?
Are there Biblical Precedents for this?
Is there any Hope in Salvation for one who has had an Abortion?
Fr. Bill addresses this hot and sensitive topic; what the Church teaches, and how it deals with those who are guilty of this violation of the 5th Commandment.
