How to Address Church Officials - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Please explain the meaning of indulgences, including partial indulgences. Many of my family and friends do not understand their purpose, what they really are in terms of remission of sins, their connection with purgatory, length of time involved, etc.   Email This Article

Is Gambling a Sin? - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

My Baptist friend says that gambling is a sin. Yet, I know many good Catholics who visit places like Atlantic City and play slot machines and the like, or schools that have casino nights as fund raisers. What should I say to my friend?  Email This Article

Is Hell a Choice Made on Earth? - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

A friend recently challenged my beliefs about hell. He described hell as a state of being where God is always present, loving the damned, and sinners are frozen by their sins to the points where existing sinless becomes unattractive to them. When welcomed into heaven, they choose instead to exist in hell until they can choose to finally accept God. What are the Church’s teachings on hell? Is a hell a choice made on earth?  Email This Article

Is Missing Mass a Mortal Sin? - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

I was visiting relatives over Easter, and sadly they do not attend Mass. I went to Mass, and reminded them that missing Mass was a mortal sin. They said, "Oh, that was in the old days. Missing Mass is no longer a mortal sin." What do you say? Please give me some ammunition.  Email This Article
