Men With a Message

When Don Henley sang, people listened. Whether it was about the End of the Age of Innocence or what Everybody Knows, it always got down to The Heart of the Matter with this Eagle singer.

Beginning in the late 1850’s to the turn of the 20th century, Blessed Columba Marion wrote with clarity, commitment and spiritual inspiration.  Their vehicles may have been different, but the message on forgiveness is the same:

“You must be persuaded that your sinful past is in no way an obstacle to very close union with God. God forgives, and His forgiveness is Divine. With the Angels, God was not merciful because they had no miseries. With us, who are full of miseries, God is infinitely merciful.”
