August 12, 2020 No Comments

As Marcus and JonMarc make their way through St. Cyprian of Carthage’s treatise on the Lord’s Prayer, they look at what he has to say about the importance of maintaining control over our bodily passions.

As human beings, what we do with our bodies has implications for our souls. St. Cyprian reminds us that our bodies express the disposition of our souls when it comes to lust, gluttony and sloth, but also in regard to faith, hope and charity.
