We’re familiar with the seven deadly sins, but these vices have offshoots that can be harder to identify. For example, you may not think you have a problem with pride, but if you struggle with disobedience, boastfulness, or stubbornness, you’re grappling with a “child” of pride. Jeff goes through the offspring of pride, anger, and lust in today’s episode, and will cover the rest of the seven deadly sins next week!

I’m speaking with Fr. Josh Johnson, pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Parish in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Fr. Josh has a new book out, Broken and Blessed, about how we are broken and our Church is broken, but that the mercy and blessings of God surpasses all our failings. We discuss this theme of brokenness: how to respond to it in others, what to do about it in the Church, and what God thinks of us when we fall.
