I have never understood confession as giving us the grace that we would have gotten if we had done what God was commanding of us. This is very helpful. If people believe it, they should be looking for their next opportunity to go to confession and go frequently!

In this ghastly deluge of audacious unbelief, weak as we are, how much strength I see in your anguished prayer for the Church! You have drawn a line between the Truth of Christ and all the wild tide that is pounding against it. You just stand there in the dark and swirling snow, face to face with the divine victim of all this evil, and beg Him to come. "Cito veniat..." And how fast does He come, … More

Now and forever, praised be Jesus Christ. Hearing truth preached about longing for the Lord to come is so refreshing.

GRACIAS P. RETO, POR ESTAS MEDITACIONES DE LAS ANTÍFONAS QUE NOS AYUDAN A PREPARARNOS A LA NAVIDAD.

This Advent is an excellent opportunity for us to better prepare our souls for the coming of the Divine Child, the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Most High, and Very Low, He who was so lowered by love for us and for our salvation, taking the form of a … More

Wouldn't it be like becoming robots (if you will) had God not given us free will?. Wasn't it His love for us that He gave it to us..so we could learn right from wrong with the mind He gave us and for us to be each an individual, just as the different talents and gifts He bestows on each. .. Having free will makes evil possible, we know that..but it also is the only thing that makes possible, … More

Thank you for the third retreat installment, Fr. Nay. Especially the last 1/4 of it.



My question is simple yet outrageous and requires some preliminary remarks.

You touched upon Adam and Eve in the Garden and that they were “carried along” with pure grace and that our steps toward Christmas leads us back to the beginning where grace controlled everything.

St. Thomas tells us, Adam… More
