Do We Still Believe In Angels? - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Easter Duty - Fr. William Saunders

My child is preparing for first penance. The Director of Religious Education at my parish said that a person only has to go to confession when he has a mortal sin. I know children that have not gone to confession since first penance. I was taught that a person had to make an "Easter duty" of going to confession and Holy Communion. What is correct?  Email This Article

Elijah - Fr. William Saunders

At daily Mass, recently, there was the story of Elijah and how he was taken up into heaven on a fiery chariot in a whirlwind. I am confused. Were not the gates of heaven closed after Adam and Eve sinned and not opened until our Lord made the sacrifice for our sins? How could Elijah go to heaven? If he did not go to heaven, where did he go?  Email This Article
