My blogging colleague at veneremurcenui pointed out a gross error uttered by Cardinal Marx, one of the members of Pope Francis' eight advisors, opined that the church must "repent of scaremongering hell". With all due respect to His Eminence, he has that precisely ass-backwards. Does he not recall that "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom"? I could go into a long tome regarding this error and the monstrous spiritual ramifications, but instead I'll post a homily on this very matter. It's most relevant during November, as we ponder the Last Four Things. If any friends of Father Robert Barron are reading, will you please ask him to pay special attention to the segment beginning at the 8:00 mark?
