On Saturday night I had my first sacrament of reconciliation on my RCIA RETREAT!
It was FANTASTIC!
I have spent a couple years now on the internet, this forum, head in books, etc… And I have convinced myself of the Catholic Faithand shared that conviction with many.
All the apologetics in the world though are mere rubbish, in comparison to the power of God I felt in the Sacrament on Saturday. It was more than emotion…it was something unlike anything I have ever experienced.
The Holy Spirit was there, I felt his healing forgiveness and love when the priest absolved me, I wept at the love and beauty I felt.
I had been nervous about recounting thirty years of sin to the priest, but not anymore. It was amazing.
I cannot wait for the next sacraments at Easter!
I just wanted to share with all of you who have helped me along in this journey!
