“There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. The choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to ‘the slavery of sin’” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1733).
"Actually, you can see almost everything which takes place in confession in Judas' behavior and attitude. There is only one thing, the most important thing, missing. That is faith in Jesus' mercy. That is why Judas' 'confession' is so sad, tragic and ended with despair and suicide." (The Gift of Faith, pg. 87)
