Barnhardt Podcast #016: Saint Mary Magdalene is a Catholic, NOT a shameless Lutheran Feminist

August 2, 2017

In this episode we continue discussing the topic of our need to have sorrow for our sins, a sense of shame for what is wrong, and a healthy fear of the Lord. We also profile Saint Mary Magdalene as the exemplar of how to repent of one's sins -- and Ann utterly destroys the notion that Mary Magdalene was some sort of proto-feminist. We also review what is required in terms of contrition for a valid Sacramental confession.
