Giggabiite ,

Fantastic show, but it feels like it takes forever b/c they do a ton of bonus ep

I really like this show, but I wish they would do less bonus episodes and more of the actual series (it’s like 3 to 1) real one, so it takes them forever to actually put out episodes. It’s not that I don’t like the bonus eps (they’re great as are the shows they promote), I just would prefer more of the actual story.

On rocky ground

I’ve been interested to see how this plays out. It very cleverly skips the actual absolution, and Fr. Ben is good at sticking to his guns about actual remorse vs just wanting to feel better (perfect and imperfect contrition, basically). His comments during “About Tomorrow” are vague though; the Church does get a lot of flack, and sometimes rightly so. It is a divine institution with human participation, and we can mess up badly. However, her teachings on same sex attractions are doctrine. Her *treatment* of those individuals may change, and has and should, but acceptance of any kind of sin isn’t a step forward. Acceptance of sinners? That, we should all do.

The point is, we all have battles and crosses to turn FROM sin and TO God, and God meets us there. Again, we’re humans, it’s hard. However, we can’t turn TO sin, AWAY from God, and decry God for not agreeing. It’s an ongoing journey, God does love you the whole way, but we don’t get our devils food cake and eat Angel food cake too.

Hope that makes sense :) God bless guys, may your work bring you closer still to God :)

Good, clean fun!

The characters are compelling, the voice acting is marvelous, and the writing is sublime. Easy to listen to and fun to follow! Excited to see where they take the storyline next! 🙏🏼🙌🏼
