MP3 - Heaven: Obstacles And Opportunities
Everyone wants to go to Heaven, but we often lose sight of how to get there.
To prepare for the day when we meet our Maker, we need to withdraw from the distractions of everyday life to look at ourselves and all that is hindering us from nearing the goal.
Lent is the time to do this, and youll find a big help from our Catholic Answers chaplain, Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P., as he takes you on a three-hour retreat into spiritual examination and renewal.
"We do not worship, we do not adore, for fear that we should bow down to the creature rather than to the Creator, but we venerate the relics of the martyrs in order the better to adore Him whose martyrs they are."
~ St. Jerome ("Ad Riparium", i, P.L., XXII, 907) writing on proper Catholic veneration of relics.
