It might be worth something if you come from a tradition without the sacrament of confession. God forgives our past; when we do not part with our past we may not be adequately repentant. Beyond the effects of sin, perhaps it is better to focus on the present with a view to the future.
FYI since comments at your article’s NCR page are closed, I can’t
respond to Ann Roth’s assertion on Sunday, Jun 15, 2014 3:45 PM “I read
Fr. Josef’s book The Healing of Families. There is nothing in it that
contradicts Church teaching. ”
Did you see Kevin Knight’s NewAdvent has a new link posted to the statement by Fr Ssemakula’s religious superiors?
a lot that contradicts Church teaching unfortunately… see #13 on
echoes of Gnostic/Manichean/Pelagian heresies, #14 and #18 on prayer
without faith = superstition; and #20 explicit contradiction of CDF/Pope
Benedict’s authorative pronouncements on use of exorcism prayers by we,
the laity is ILLICIT.
NSFF (not safe for families) !
