Comments from Attendees:
Using Meditations and Dante to combat the sins is wonderful.
This was an amazing talk with big psychological insights that had not occurred to me, despite my having read Purgatorio several times. I would have loved for it to last longer, so that Daniel might have had time to talk more about how to meditate with and to apply the Rosary and the Magnificat to overcome these sins. I think I come away with a brief set of thoughts on how to approach that, but I would love to hear Daniel lay it out in further detail. And it would be interesting indeed to hear him talk about the particular characters in Purgatorio and match them up against the virtues of Our Lady.
a very comprehensive talk, with many suggestions and ideas to ponder–Thank you
