The priest said that was no way for a man to talk to God when he was dying and that the old sailor had better hurry up and be sorry for his sins if he didn't want to go to hell and lose Almighty God for ever and ever; but the old sailor said that while he was sorry for having missed the Sacraments so often and for not having loved God more, he wasn't sorry for having known all those women, because they had all been so beautiful and some of them very kind as well. In his despair Father Smith asked the old sailor if he was sorry for not being sorry for having known all those women and the old sailor said that yes, he was sorry for not being sorry and he hoped that God would understand. Whereupon Father Smith said that he thought that perhaps God would understand. .
When is the last time that you were truly sorry for your sins? Elaborate on the courage it takes to repent for past mistakes.
Lesson: Sorry for being out, ---again. Can't control this. I was the guest speaker for the sisters at the health care facility yesterday. They were very taken back by what we want to do with them. On Thursday, I will take you up the hill. Today, we are going to watch the Green Mile. You will receive a packet of notes about the film. This film is filled with great depth of the Catholic Social Teaching. I will elaborate more about all of them next class. In the meantime, watch the film from the perspective of identifying the CST's. God Bless.
