Dropped out a few things -- bashing babies heads against rocks -- but tends to
be how especially daily readings are arranged

1st reading for 24. Jan -> Heb 10:1-10
“The perfect is the enemy of the good”
A lot of people aware they are not perfect & are troubled by it -> one answer to
How sins were forgiven in the past (offering / sacrifice) vs. now (through Christ)
Works = righteousness is a heresy -> its not how God forgives us our sins,
instead forgiveness through God’s grace
Adherence to the law does not equal saved
Law is only a shadow, but not primary / not the whole thing
Jewish belief: the Messianic age will dawn when all of the Jews keep perfectly
the Sabbath at the same time
(on Canvas, in pages -> Study guides & misc -> Bretzke’s notes on moral theology -- its
a work in progress)

Sacraments mainly under munus santificandi
Keeping rules will be how a person is sanctified -> so a person needs to be a
target & governed

Confession sometimes called the tribunal
Casuistry = cases of conscience
Difficult case trying to help the person understand what was in play
More deductive process at this time (not inductive)
Geometry is deductive
Look at features -> relatve them to principles
E.g. couple in irregular marriage
