If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may remember this post.
I will be praying the annual Divine Mercy Novena and want you to join me!
In a previous post I quoted Fr. Michel Rodrigue:
“Your first refuge is also the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary…”
After reading the quote, I began contemplating its meaning.
In my previous post I explained the Sacrament of Confession by using information from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The purpose of Part I was to describe the theology of the sacrament.
The purpose of Part II is to provide tools and guidance for participating in it.
After reading this post, I hope you feel excited to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation!
In this post I’ll focus on:
In my mid-twenties I began to practice my Catholic Faith more seriously and attend Mass regularly. During that time, I kept hearing a priest talk about confession during his homilies.
Even though I wanted to go to confession, I didn’t know much about it because I wasn’t taught to go regularly.
I desired to understand why I need to receive the sacrament, what it is and the effects.
Once I discovered this information and received the sacrament, it was life-changing!
