Why I love Daily Mass . . .

It's an easy opportunity to do frequent confession.

Advice from Father Avelino during his pep talk on my role as a Mother:

"I can think of no more important job in this deformed society, than to be given the task of forming souls!"

Thank you for our priests! I can't tell you how grateful I am to have the sacrament of confession. It's a clean slate, a "do over." You've got a problem, you've got something that's knawing at you, you've got a venial sin that won't go away not matter how hard you try. Just step into the sacred silence of a confessional and WHAM! Jesus is there. He gets you all straightened up and realinged. He even hands you the zeal to face a new day.

In my mind, "I will not leave you orphaned" means "I will not make you figure out all alone how to know, love and serve Our Father." Thank you God for handing me my Catholic faith with all the richness and the beauty of the confessional.

  1. Very well said! Doesn't it make you sad to realize how many of our Catholic brethren just don't understand the beauty and peace in that Sacrament?

    I loved this article it make me realize how lucky I truly am. How as a parent it is your job to guide your children on the path of faith. That it is your job as a husband or a wife to get your spouse to heaven. Sounds like I missed a good homily! Thanks for taking the time to post.
