015: Why The Fight Against Deliberate Venial Sin is So Important

Listen to the Podcast

In the great devotional, In Conversation with God, Fr Francis Fernandez discusses why it’s so important that we take venial sin, not just mortal sin, seriously.

Because unlike mortal sin, venial sin does not sunder our relation with God, we sometimes see it as a normal part of life – almost a defect, but in fact it’s much more serious than that.
