The Holy Spirit has a job to do, says Father Matt Guckin in his latest podcast: to enlighten our minds, turn us from sin and help us to have empathy for others. But if we keep the Spirit from penetrating our soul and never yield to him, that is when we commit the “unforgivable sin” of blasphemy: God won’t forgive the person who refuses to repent. It’s never too late to say we’re sorry for our sins, receive forgiveness and follow Jesus into heaven.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
