Spiritual Exercises for Lent:Day 18
Prepare well for the Confession. Frequent Confession is like a shower for your soul, cleansing you completely, giving you healing and freedom from sin. Frequent Confession is like a petrol for your soul, it keeps you going through the rough roads of our lives. Sacrament of the Reconciliation is a superb grace. It is a big “SORRY” said to our Father in Heaven every time we do wrong, every time we fail or disappoint God, every time we fail to keep His Commandments.
A guide for good confession:
- If you need help especially if you have been away for some time simply ask the priest and he will help you by “walking” you through the steps to make a good confession.
- Be truly sorry for your sins, ask God for the Holy Spirit to help you to examine your conscience, best way is to go through 10 Commandments and see if you kept them or not.
- Remember that it is really Jesus who gives you forgiveness through priest
- Always tell the priest your state of life: married or single, priest or religious, under religious vows or promises
