Rejoice with me! Confession


#1

I have made a good confession today after a long time. Please come and rejoice with me! :)
The Lord is good and he has "outdone" my farthest wish today.
It is an enormous gift to know Him and to meet Him in the sacraments!
(Off to receive Him in Holy Communion now! :) )

How wonderful for you! He offers this gift to you all the time, any time you fall into sin, and I hope you take advantage of it often.

That is wonderful.

I had my own issue last week. I got to Confession kind of late, and the Priest was gone! That's our once a week 45 minutes of confession for a parish of 12,000!

So on Sunday I just prayed during Communion.

I recalled listening to Relevant Radio and Fr. Rich Simon said "if you ever need to go to confession sooner than your parish offers, find a Mexican or Polish parish because they have confession several times weekly. So low and behold Monday I was in Elgin, IL which has a beautfiul Mexican parish St. Joseph. After my business meeting I went over and got in line. Afterwards, I attended Mass in Spanish--hadn't experienced that in many years. Beautiful.

Thank you for all the kind messages! I am still in awe from what happened. I feel like walking on air, keep grinning all day and want to shout and jump about - and I'm 43! :dancing: It was an amazing experience. The Lord is good.

My longest stretch was 8 yars. That confession was life-changing and life-giving!

Glad to share the joy!
