It's refreshing to read a Roman Catholic priest's perspectives that clearly have the Holy Spirit in them, the perspectives of a true believer. I say so since I have left the Roman Catholic Church mainly because of it's work's theology which I think discredits the Savior and some of it's pagan traditions it has embraced.
I say this because I still have many family members in the RCC and I pray for their salvation. If there are priests that are truly saved, perhaps they can also become true believers in Jesus Christ.
Thanks for your e-mail and kind words. Don't all of us face the temptation of falling into a "works theology" and need purification of secular (pagan) ideas that enter our lives?
My prayers for you and your family members. God bless.
