If we find ourselves more interested in the things of hell, then it might be time to remember the things of Heaven: - pray to your Guardian Angel - what name are you working towards earning in Heaven? - read about what Christ said and what His followers said about Him in the Bible and pay no attention to the hearsay of evil entities


27 Apr 23 – Diabolic Compatibility and Sin

Today's Topics: 1, 2, 3, 4) How do we define sin? The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us: When we sin, our intellect is dulled as Saint Thomas Aquinas tells us. But, if our intellect is dulled how are we supposed to fulfill the mission God made all of us for? As the Baltimore Catechism tells us: Q: Why did God make you? A: God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in heaven. If our intellect is dull, how are we supposed to know God? And most importantly, if our intellect is dull and and we are thwarted in knowing God, who do we know? What do we know? In my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done and what I have failed to do, are my thoughts compatible with Heaven or with Hell?

Today's Topics: What is expected of men today? Should a man have feminine traits? What are masculine and feminine traits? Do they have to do with being a man or a woman? Unfortunately, in todays world we use the word masculine and feminine traits in a way that that makes it seem like certain characteristics belong specifically to a man or specifically to a woman.

Let's learn more about these traits, specifically as men, and how we should apply them to our daily lives.
