A Fellow Blogger Examines the Sacrament of Confession #Catholic

This may not be entirely fair to post this on a Sunday. Some parishes do offer Confession before a Mass on Sunday, but many do it on Saturdays. Still, my fellow Catholic blogger, Cathy of Alex, has a powerful post, Endless Wait and Panic, about the importance of going to confession.

Have you ever had one of those occasions when you are in serious sin,perhaps even mortal sin, and you are panic stricken at the thought of not being able to find an open Confessional? What if you don't even know where a priest is? What if Father is late for his regularly scheduled Confession times and there you sit in utter despair and panic. The wait seems endless. What if he doesn't show up? What is your backup plan? Where else can I go? What should I do?

What, indeed. Well worth the read.
