Where you preach law, you must preach gospel too. Doncha know? even Church discipline and its laws exist for the gospel. When we speak of morals, of good works, of reform, of repentance, we must point to the Cross, to the grace shown forth in the Eucharist, or all comes to nothing. It’s about freedom, deliverance from the house of death, newness of life in the Resurrection that forever changed the world.
Without Christ, we have nothing.
