True Confessions

From a veteran priest in a Washington Post piece today on Reconciliation:

“I’ve been hearing confessions for 36 years, and I haven’t been surprised for 35 years,” he says.

Through experience, he has learned that “I have a lot of stress” could mean a man cursed at a stranger or cheated on his wife.

It is a reminder that there is no sin too big or too small to confess. God wants to give you His mercy. It is the best way to have a shot at lessening that stress: letting Him take the guilt from our shoulders! Giving us the grace to truly walk with him! To avoid cursing or cheating or whatever it is we have done.

    So very true. The WaPo piece, incidentally, is about seminarians at Mount St. Mary’s preparing to hear confessions after ordination. It is worth a read in its own right.
