    Fr. Mike reflects on the story of David and Absalom, and points out the lack of forgiveness and repentance on both men's part.

    Fr. Mike touches on the sins of David, and how we can see ourselves in these fallen characters in scripture. God desires a relationship with us free from sin, and although it may be painful, he brings these things into the light not out of anger, but out of love. Today's readings are 2 Samuel 12, 1 Chronicles 16, and Psalm 51.
