Received Eucharist after 12 years!


Hi all!

I went to confession on Friday and it was SOOOO wonderful!! Everyone was right, I had no reason to be afraid. The priest was great, kind, and compassionate.

I went to Mass yesterday and received the Eucharist for the first time in 12 years. What an amazing feeling I had all day yesterday. Really hard to describe, but anyone who has gone years will know what I mean.

I just wanted to share my blessing with all of you. Thank you all for your prayers. You are all so great!!

God bless you!



Congratulations, VR70! Now maybe YOU can be the one helping others get over the nervousness of going to confession!:slight_smile:


Congratulations!!! And thank you for encouraging others by your example!! I know the angels in heaven are rejoicing that you returned to the Sacrament of Reconcilliation and to the Eucharist.




What a fabulous way to kick off Holy Week! For you, and for all of us, knowing we will have one more at Christ’s table!

Congratulations! And welcome home! :smiley:

we had first communions for adults last week, and more for today, all these adults ready for Easter in clean white garments. wow. thanks to you, the Church is blessed along with you. let the Church say AMEN




wow, awesome!
Praise the Lord.

I am very happy for you, Trish.
One of the best things is to go to confession regularly.
Mark on your calendar that you would go about … say once per month. When you get into the routine of going to Confession, you would keep on going … you can’t wait to go to confession. :slight_smile:

God bless.


I am so thrilled for you! And just to start Holy Week, how perfect.
Did you do the “Saint for a Day Dance”? :extrahappy: That’s what my hubby always says after he goes to confession :wink: Keep it up!


Wow , Trish. Thanks for sharing that. That’s awesome. I know how it feels to be away for a couple of months, but 12 years, whew!


I’m so happy for you, and so glad that you are sharing your joy with all of us!


I’m so happy for you! I can’t wait until I’m confirmed Saturday and I recieve for the 1st time!


Congratulations!:slight_smile: What a great way to begin Holy Week.

Wow - fabulous! Keep going to Confession - you’ll grow to really love it! Happy Easter!



Thank you all! :smiley:

I have been walking on air all weekend long

My birthday is on Easter Sunday this year, and when my new priest noticed that on my registration forms, he said that he couldn’t imagine a better birthday present then coming back to the Church after so much.

I wholeheartedly agree! :slight_smile:

God bless!



Great news!
Congratulations and welcome back to our Lord’s table.
