The Sacrament of Confession is a Good Thing?


Has it been a while since you’ve been to confession? Maybe you go frequently? Whatever your practice is, the sacrament of Confession presents itself as a superior form of restoring peace of mind, reconciliation, and spiritual direction, especially during a divorce.
 
Did you know that it’s not simply about taking responsibility for the things we have done wrong, but a chance to get rid of all that interior crud that is weighing us down? By celebrating the sacrament of confession frequently, you have the opportunity to make some real, noticeable progress toward healing through the good advice from the priest and the abundant graces the sacrament brings.
 
And don’t worry about whatever you have to confess… they’ve heard it all! You can feel free to ask questions and receive excellent advice on how to proceed with the things that are bothering you. Most importantly, your soul is washed clean and you can walk away with a renewed interior freedom, confident in the fact that God loves you!
 
Suggested resolution: Especially if it’s been more than 6 months since your last confession, make time to go this weekend. If you are especially troubled by certain things that will require more discussion than Saturday confessions allow, call your parish and make an appointment with the priest so you can have the time you need.
 
Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord – Acts 3: 19

    I like the article. In my opinion God gives you control over your life as well as faith. I think you must set your persona goals. I have been a widow since Dec. 3, 2006. I did not consider another mate for several years. When I did consider another mate I was shocked. Better than 90 % of the ladies I looked at do not accept all the faith questions. These questions do not really seem important. Living together outside of marriage seems to be acceptable. I have developed a system to not even consider a lady if she responds to the questions ” I accept most,.” God.. expects us to fully accept the 10 commandments and the teachings of the Catholic church. I am going to hang on and be able to say I want to get into the everlasting life. I fully understand your frustrations. Do not give up. God’s plan might be to accept you humble and pure. Thank You and God Bless Jesse
