  • This is wonderful Aaron. I myself actually enjoy going to confession. My problem is often being able to get there physically. As I write this, there are several inches of new snow covering the ground, and I know I won't be making it to the Parish Reconciliation Service tonight. But, I do know that, when I can make it, I too will feel that sense of ease and "rightness" with the world. Blessings for your Advent and Christmas!

  • Aaron, I so agree that sometimes we feel the call to go and that it's God interacting with us in little ways. I too went to confession this past Saturday and took my daughter along as well. We have been lax about going as we should and something had been telling me that we needed to do this during Advent. The peacefulness and feeling of connection is really very special, it's one of the first times I haven't been nervous either and I look forward to going on a more regular basis now.

  • Cindy, That's great to hear. I don't want to wait so long either and am going to try to make it a habit of going once a month. Also, Monday night before going to sleep I was listening to a homily by Fr. Larry Richards and he was talking about confession. As soon as I realized the topic I just said "God, I just went" and laughed.

  • Aaron, welcome to the Catholic Digest Blogging Team! Loved your insight on God's small prompts (big?) to us using the everyday, the ordinary. Sometimes I'm aware, sometimes I miss it totally. When I do 'tune in', it's definitely God's grace--everywhere and always. God bless you!

  • After I go to confession, I know this sounds funny but, I feel weightless and like clicking my heels up in the air. Perhaps because of the weight of our sins we carry in our souls. At any age after renewing ourselves with our families , friends, the Church and God, Penance is not something to be afraid of. Give forgiveness a try and see how you will feel.
