In this clip, he explain to a listener exactly what it means to be in the Paulist order of priests. (Originally aired: 02/18/10.

Father Dave talks to a listener about two very interesting questions regarding confession. The first is about the concept of certain standardized amounts of penance for certain sins.

Why can’t I just confess my sins to God? (Originally aired: 01/29/10.
