Webster Bull runs a blog called "Why I am Catholic..." He is a convert, and as is the case with many converts to the faith, he often reminds us Cradle Catholics how good we have it. Read this following quote from his most recent article: Because Confession Can Change the World:
To set this world spinning the right way round, I think we Catholics might need to do just one thing: Start going to confession again. Then take our kids to confession. Once a month would be OK, once a week even better. Don't believe me? Listen to me brag about my fourth-grade CCD class... there was that amazing, eerie phenomenon of thirty nine-year-old children sitting quietly for half an hour. As each child came out of the sacristy, he or she pulled down the kneeler at their pew and said their penance. Then we walked back to our classrooms. I asked the children if anyone felt worse now than they did before confession. No one raised a hand. Who felt better? Everyone. Every single child.
Change the World, brothers and sisters.
A reminder: Communal Penance Service TONIGHT, 7pm. GO!
If your hesitant about going... GO!
