By Rev. William M. Cwirla

If you think about it, the root of every sin is covetousness. I want this…I need that…So how do we battle this perpetual struggle? Rev. Cwirla reminds us that Christ has fulfilled the 9th and 10th Commandments on our behalf. We don’t have to let our “want this” or “need this” lead us into sin because we are immeasurably blessed with all we could ever truly need through Christ’s death and resurrection.
