  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

  1. I need your guidance. When my wife and I engage in intercourse, I usually digitally penetrate her to arouse her (and often to the point of orgasm as she normally doesn’t climax through penetrative sex alone) and then we engage in full penetrative sex immediately afterwards. We don’t engage in oral sex or mutual masturbation. I had always thought that this act is licit as long as it was part of a full act of intercourse but I have read recently that I may be wrong about this so I’m looking for clarity.

    FATHER JOE: The old moral manuals contend that the whole effort would be made permissible if leading to the marital act or immediately subsequent to it. It is viewed as a whole.
