On International Forgiveness Day, which is the first Sunday in August annually since 1996, Fr John Brian entered into a discussion of how some Christians can develop a serious problem in their spiritual life. He used the modern therapuetic term, "criminal thinking" to explain the spiritual teachings in this Sunday's scripture lessons.
