Welcome Back: Confession

It has been nearly a year since I posted on this site, but I am back! Just like that, isn't it great. What is even greater, is the majesty of the Catholic Church. The ability to simply confess to a priest (with true contrition) and be welcomed back into the fullness of God's church. Try to find any other relationship for which you can simply say "sorry" and all is forgiven. You won't find it. Jesus, through his Church, is always waiting with arms open, for you to come home. Think of the prodigal son---what an image! We all slip, we are human, we are sinners, but only through the Catholic Church and the Sacrament of Confession are you brought back into the full grace of God. Wow! Take a look at this video, the great folks at SQPN (www.sqpn.com) have put together some great (and entertaining) short films about Catholic subjects. Also, I want you to walk...run...to confession...your FATHER is waiting...God Bless!

Welcome Back Rocs!!!!!!!!!! Great video!!! And remember, Jesus Christ's Incarnation, preaching, miracles, prayers, healings, Passion and Resurrection, the establishment of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church was for the reconciliation of the sinner to God! Spend the rest of your life contemplating that and give the most blessed Trinity honor, praise and thanksgiving for it!!!!!!!!

Turn away your face from my sins;
blot out all my guilt.
A clean heart create for me, God;
renew in me a steadfast spirit.

Psalm 51: 11-12
