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?
http://fathersofmercy.com/events/official-statement-fathers-mercy-healing-families/ There’s 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.
