Fr. Jeffrey Keefe, O.F.M. Conv., Chaplain of Courage in Syracuse, NY, speaks on the “The Varieties of Guilt” which we face on our pilgrimage to God and the appropriate pastoral approach to cope with them in a world where temptation and sin are increasing. In the process he explains the nature of shame and how shame and guilt are our built-in monitors of our behaviour. Yet, no matter how bad we mess up, we should look to God to help straighten out the mess and so find peace.
