I talk about a lot of stuff on this blog that I have no business talking about.
But here's one thing I'm an expert at: sin.
I am one hell of a sinner.
And, for those of you who don't believe in sin, or who don't think sin is always a bad thing, let me tell you. It is death. It is the only bad thing. It destroys love, betrays friends, kills trust. All good things come from God, and sin seeks some sort of good in a bad way, and suddenly it's hell. Hell is real. It's all around us, and many people are mired in it.
Death is the flower of sin.
So nip that flower in the bud.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, amen.
