I once saw a cartoon of two souls up to their necks in a hellish lake of fire, demons leering over them. One soul says to the other, "At least yours were sins of commission!"
We can sin by commission or by omission.
We can also commit scandal by what we don’t do.
A friend of mine in KC, MO, sent this comment about a local parish. He was working from a notice in the bulletin about the confession schedule:
Notice the times available for confession. 1 hour a month (on the second Saturday each month.) This is a parish of around 1,000 families. I guess they are so "holy," they don’t need it.
Here is a snippet from the bulletin he sent me.
I find it interesting that they speak so clearly about tithing but opportunities for confession are so …. thin.
Think about this…. one… hour… per month.
