Our journey this week will be unique and special in many ways. Come along with Jason Nunez and his guest, Fr. Paul Melgarejo, Parochial Vicar of St. Matthew Catholic Church, in San Antonio, TX. They will be shining a light on the Sacrament of Confession! Fr. Paul entered the seminary after hearing the voice of God, calling him to the priesthood in Daily Mass and attending holy hour. Fr. Paul was ordained to the priesthood on May 15, 2021.
During this episode, you will hear about:
- What are some of the benefits of frequent Confession?
- What is the Seal of Confession?
- And what inspiration can we take from all this for our daily journey of life?
We are so grateful to this month’s sponsors, Chris and Patty Parma, who made this podcast episode possible.
