Lent is a time to truly repent. Some sins (mortal sins) actually kill our soul and deprive us of God's grace. To die in this state of mortal sin is to choose Hell for all eternity. Yes, Hell is real. In this homily, I identify the most common deadly sins in our world so that all may turn away from them and choose life in God.
My goal at the Basilica is to promote the fullness of the faith--in my preaching, teaching, worship and outreach. I want the Basilica to become a place of refuge in Baltimore. I want to show the world that simply doing what Christ asks is enough to renew a Church, a City and the World. But I need help in achieving this goal. Please read my letter below and consider supporting our efforts. Thanks and God bless, Fr. James
