I post the following email from a reader not so much because this blog helped someone to get back to confession as… well… errrr… because this blog helped someone get back to confession.
Now I post this as an example to others out there, readers or commentators, participants or lurkers. Do what this guy did and just GO!
Thanks to your repeated urging, I went to confession for the first time in about 6 months and was able to clear my soul of some rather nasty sins that had been weighing me down and inducing me to further sin. Staying this way will be hard, but I couldn’t even have this problem before being absolved, so I guess that’s the price we pay. :)
Thanks again, and please keep up the reminders. It’s important.
If you have been away from confession for a long time, go! If you are hesitating about going to confession, go! Priests, hear confessions! If you sit there they will come.
