Feast of the Venerable St. Dominica the Righteous
This session will provide a pastoral discussion of the struggles individuals have in ‘controlling their desires’, and what might be involved in such struggles and their resolution in Christian terms. The purpose here is to revisit positively the concept and practice of ascetic discipline with respect to ‘taming the passions’.
