Thank you. We DO need thsi reminder. Confession is a very powerful sacrament and can change our hearts and could even change the world!
Confession is as powerful as an exorcism IMHO.

Amen to that, Chris!!!

It's amazing that so many people will pour out their innermost thoughts, feelings, and actions to a therapist (a complete stranger in the beginning), yet they are reluctant to visit the confessional periodically. They'll also dish out co-pays, or pay for the consultations themselves. "No Cost Therapy" signs in our Churches might help.

Yes, we do, Marian.

People can compare going to confession to visiting their dentist. We're afraid to go; it might hurt a little bit, but don't we feel so much better afterward? scratchchin

It is free. We can go weekly if we want. Again for free. It is powerful. It is clearing your mind and heart of many things that weigh you down and keep you from growing closer to God. It is an encounter with the living Christ. Going often to confession is utilizing and growing in another aspect of knowing Christ. I believe it can make changes in us more quickly than anything.

I generally go weekly, no more than every two weeks. Someone asked me why I go so often. The better question is why wouldn't I? What's harder, swallowing pride - which we are not supposed to be carrying around, or letting go of what is weighing us down? Living in Baptist land, I regularly get the lecture, "I don't need that. I confess directly to God." I feel sorry for them. They will never hear the voice saying you are forgiven.

A lot is expected of us, as catholics, as much is given to us. Great topic Chris!! heart

Ditto AnneMarie! Those Protestants miss the point.
