Examination of Conscience in Real Time

I had a booger of a sin to confess. After hem-hawing around about whether or not to go to my home parish or some other far away parish, I toyed with the idea that my sin might not be a sin at all, and maybe I was just being scrupulous. But I couldn't kick the guilty sensation it caused, and finally, this morning, enough was enough. I had to humble up, confess the dumb sin and get it over with...

Betty Duffy's Examination of Conscience in Real Time.

What a good post~~

Mahalo to the Anchoress!

Thanks for the link, Esther - I loved the post from beginning to end. Our church does the before the Mass Confessions too and I have been left high and dry many times because the lines were too long. Betty Duffy's post made me look at things from a different perspective. We are blessed to have the religious freedom that we have. I am going to stand in line again (patiently) this Saturday. (They don't do Confessions before Sunday Mass which irritated me a bit until I read this article :)

Many, many, thanks for your prayers, Esther! They are working marvelously! I don't know what you are doing but please don't stop :) Praying for you and yours too. God bless!
