Let’s face it – we’re all human. all capable to have moments of weaknesses. Willfully or not, we break a commandment or two during the course of the day. In other words, we sin. They may not be serious enough to send us to hell and eternal damnation, but nevertheless, they are sins. The first time I heard a priest say that the Ten Commandments are not Ten Suggestions, I thought it was clever, then I thought, yes, that IS so true. As good Catholic Christians, who are serious about attaining our ultimate goal of Paradise, we should observe them diligently and faithfully. May this group be a reminder for us to make frequent and regular Examination of Conscience, as well as frequent and regular Confession. Feel free to share your thoughts, with as little or as many words as you prefer.
