  1. God is truly forgiving and we have to simply go to confession and be healed from our sins. I was not able to receive communion for 33 years due to poor decisions in my life and when I returned to confession, I bawled my heart out. It was on a night when there is public confession and the priest held me while I cried. Confession does a body good.

    • Thanks for sharing. As a priest I have had the experience of returning Catholics many times. Even once as a seminarian. I could not hear the person’s confession, but directed him to the pastor and the times for Confession, and then met with him afterwards. I’ll never forget when he came up to me after Mass having received Communion for the first time in 40 years. He just beamed and said: “I did it!”
