Confession and the Future

03/13/2016

The adulterous woman gets a pardon. Jesus points her to the future and doesn’t want her to dwell in the past. He also demands deeds of mercy from her accusers. Do you confess your sins? Do it! There is an incredible wave of freedom that washes over you. Try it. You’ll like it.

I’m not kidding. And I don’t say it lightly.

 

 

Jesus promised Saint Faustina that even the greatest sinner had hope of redemption if they would only confess their sins and ask the Lord for mercy.

Just ask.

Off the Rails!

03/06/2016

Jesus teaches the parable of the prodigal son again at the Sunday Mass, our second look at this Gospel (Luke 15:1-3, 11-32) during Lent 2016.

Let’s look at it from the son’s perspective before he gets back to his dad.

First, he tells his dad “I don’t want to wait for you to die. Gimme my share of your money now.”

Then, he pisses it all away.

Then, he comes to his senses. He realizes that his father’s servants have it better than he does, slaving away, slopping pigs. He decides that he needs to confess his sins.

Here’s today’s grotesque video look at the message:

Ever come to your senses after going off the rails when burying your heavenly Father? How does it feel, going into and coming out of that confessional?
