When I asked Henk Rogers how he made Tetris a hit, he said "crazy persistence." If you listen to this program, you’ll hear how his persistence kept helping him overcome obstacles that would have made others quit.

Five lies of Lucifer. Five sins of Eve. The turning to self away from God. Virtues and corresponding vices. The necessity of continuing our growth in learning the Faith. Eight sins of Adam. Whose sin is greater? Christ’s temptations as a model for our lives. The craftiness of Lucifer. Do not converse with the devil; say only, "Be gone!"
