Summer time and early autumn may not involve a great liturgical cycle such as Advent/Christmas, Lent/Easter, during which we may be reminded to prepare for a great feast by confession.
But every Sunday is a feast of precept, a Holy Day of Obligation. The Sundays “through the year”, flowing in their orderly and ordinary way, help us to make concrete things we reinforce during those other great cycles.
So… in my capacity as blogosphere nag… go to confession.
A reader wrote this to me, which I found very gratifying. He quotes something I posted here some time ago and adds his comment. Perhaps it will be useful to you.
“We all know the bit about making a perfect act of contrition… maybe you can do that and maybe you can’t. That’s up to you. But God cannot be fooled. If you know you shouldn’t receive then don’t.”
Thank you so much for this Father. Hit me right between the eyes. I”ve been fooling myself. To Confession soon. Again, thanks.
Holy Communion in the state of grace, friends.
