Father Wade will begin our parish mission tomorrow 2/19/18.

Sunday afternoon he made a visit to our St. Madeleine Youth Group for prayer and a Pop Quiz on today's Homily.

A most relevant point for those ready to begin high school and college was made.:

"The University Student stays CHASTE because his Baptism and Confirmation call him to stay CHASTE."

BE OTHER-CENTERED

Ordered love is other-centered.   Inordinate love is self-centered.

John Paul II:  "We will be judged on LOVE."

Two of Father Menezes's most challenging and TRUTHFUL concepts:
    1. The Birth Control Pill liberates MEN.
    2. The sin of UTILITY is using other people for YOURSELF.
               Primary Example is the "HOOKUP'
                          A. "The She, typically, does not see this."
                          B. "The He typically is well aware of what he can get."

It is hard to forgive and hard to give in because we are all wounded people living in a wounded world.

One of the smallest muscles - the tongue - can start the largest wild fires.

LOVE ONE ANOTHER CONSTANTLY FROM THE HEART.

GIVING OF SELF, ENRICHES  ONE SELF

WOUNDING OTHERS DOES NOT HEAL OUR WOUNDS

UNDERSTAND THE REALITY OF VICE AND VIRTUE

Frequent Confessions brings growth in self knowledge and growth in spirituality.

Sin has categories of consequences: Personal, Social, Ecclesiastical, and Cosmic

We do not have souls..... We are souls.

Moral Theology example is to avoid extremes.
Pride / Self Loathing
Greed / Wastefulness
Lust / Prudishness
Anger / Servility
Gluttony / Deficiency
Envy / Pusillanimity
Sloth or Acedia / Workaholism
Each of above extremes have a Capital Virtue to correct error and live a balanced life.

No thought or conversation is hidden from God...... No duplicity or duplicitous living

Each morning make an offering and say Act of Contrition

Much more on CD!!!!!
