'Fear of the Lord Leads to the Love of the Sacred,' by Father Richard M. Heilman

Fear of the Lord Leads
to the Love of the Sacred
Father Richard M. Heilman

How can we grow in reverence and devotion to the Holy Trinity? Father Richard Heilman shows us how the Fear of the Lord/Awe and Wonder can inspire us to seek the Sacred in everything. This lesson will help you deepen your relationship with God and discover the beauty of His presence.

  1. How are some ways that temptation from the world, flesh, and the Devil has diminished our sense of the sacred in the world?
  2. The way by which Fr. Heilman describes the gift of ‘wisdom’; as being Awe and Wonder of God and Holy Fear of the Lord; are you operating in that gift right now?
  3. How do you feel when you witness irreverence or blasphemy towards Christ Jesus, the Blessed Mother, or our sacred places?
