Reality: The First Step Toward Salvation

February 23, 2008 Length: 15:36

This week, Fr Joseph gets real: "The thing about Confession is that it is natural. That is, it is Real. Almost everything else we do with our sin is false and unnatural. We punish ourselves, justify our actions, and hide. Yet, in Confession -- in opening ourselves to God the Light -- we expose the hypocrisy of our double life. In truth, we've been living a lie. Without Confession, Absolution, and Reconciliation we live a lie before God and Man as if it were Reality. In reality, no one is fooled -- not our neighbor, not ourselves. And, let's be real, certainly not God."

"Thank you for your wonderful Ancient Faith Radio ministry. It is often on in our home, streamed through our iPhones. A few years ago I mentioned to my priest that I found it hard to turn off NPR during Great Lent when I wanted to cut down on distractions. He recommended replacing it with AFR, and ever since I have enjoyed your streaming music and talk and listened to many of your podcasts. "
