My last Parish, one had the option to face the Priest or with a divider. A parishioner once told me, "I always face him. I love the challenge. I don't get embarrassed. It is a good feeling showing humility.
Embarrassed? No. Humbled? Yes!
I absolutely love the Sacrament of Reconciliation. I admit that it has taken me years to reach this point!
I'm very blessed to have an extremely helpful and wise confessor at this time. I make an effort to go to Confession weekly and I meet with Father for spiritual direction occasionally.
I receive the Sacrament frequently not because I'm doing anything really bad, but because I want to be good, and I want to do better, to be my best for God. In the Sacrament, I feel God's Grace pouring over me and giving me the strength to fight the battles in my day to day life.
As a widow, the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the spiritual guidance I've received from Father have helped me move from a grief journey to a healing journey.
