The Ten Commandments Cover a Multitude of Sins

1 Comment

In 1 Peter 4:8, our first pope writes that “love covers a multitude of sins.” He’s referring to how our love for others is pleasing to God and can help to atone for our sins. The Ten Commandments also “cover” a multitude of sins, but in the sense that there are countless sins that fall within the parameters of each of the commandments. This is so important to know, so that we can be aware of how serious certain actions are, and can work to eliminate them from our lives. Join Jerry and Debbie – and their guest, Fr. Thomas Petri, O.P. – for a discussion about this on Thursday.

  1. I caught the midnight replay of this show. I have an idea for the lady from Kentucky(?) who wasn’t sure how to dodge gossiping when probed by others without feeling like she was lying. Well, my friend at work is protestant, I consider myself an exploring catholic, and another building staff member is unabashedly atheist. Together we have very good conversation. My friend always knows just what to say when the conversation gets too intense. My favorite is when she pulls from pop culture and says something like “you know we’re cool, but I’m just not going there!” Or, “I’m taking a time-out on that one!” Or, “I plead the 5th.” No one has walked away ever permanently offended. They are good verbal cues. Maybe that will help with the gossip show too.
