Downloadable MP3 | 80 Minute Duration
Many consider it a bold, even an audacious statement to say men can forgive sins. What is the basis for the Catholic claim that priests have the power to absolve sins in the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
Steve Ray takes you on an adventure through Old and New Testaments and the Early Church to discover the answer.
