Catholic Compassion



Note. The text in this booklet can also be found as an appendix in my book Falling Families, Fallen Children. Nevertheless, even if you have that book you might still want this booklet for yourself or to give to others.

More about this booklet . . .

Catholic Compassion

How can Catholics “take the emphasis off sin” and focus on God’s healing mercy—and not end up condoning sin?

All of us are tempted today by those who try to convince us to doubt the moral teachings of the Catholic Church.
We are induced to look with desire at behaviors that separate us from a holy life, saying to ourselves, “How can there be anything wrong with something that seems so nice?”
This booklet, in explaining real Catholic compassion, can help you understand how friends, teachers, professors, the entertainment industry—and even priests, bishops, and popes—can lead you away from God under the deceptive guise of “being compassionate.”


No longer available. Soon to be a book.
