I just got back from my first confession in over 30-40 years. I talked to you all in the thread I made about clothes for church.
I was in with the priest like 20 minutes. He asked about all the marriages and started with the ten commandments. After pouring my heart out to him. He said some prayer, then He gave me my pennance.
5 hail Mary’s???
I said to him " You mean I dont have to say a 100 rosarys? He smiled and said, " Son, Welcome back"
I stood next to my motorcycle in the parking lot, looked up at the sky, and cried. I dont cry! It was like a huge boulder was taken off my shoulders.
Tommorrow, I will be going to my first Mass (8 am) in forever. I will receive Communion too. I cant believe I went today. Everyone who responded to my plea in my last thread, gave me the courage to go today.
THANK YOU…THANK YOU…THANK YOU!!!
God bless you all.
