So, I try to frequent the sacraments. I try to go every week, sometimes more if I NEED to go. After each time, I think to myself: “How can I sin less?” but then I realized - with the help of my confessor - that I should think: “How can I be more holy?” Before the goal was to have to confess less, but I’d imagine, the holier I hopefully become, the more I would realize how much I sin. “Verso l’alto” (Towards the top) - Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
Look for my new book this fall, Towards a Liberationist Re-Evaluation Of My Life And Wisdom.
I am dying.
Go to Confession and experience Our Lord’s Love and Mercy.
Has it been a long time? Go.
Have you committed dumb or embarrassing sins? Go.
Do not be afraid! Jesus is waiting for you and wants to heal and forgive you!
I just went! Max, thank you for the positive butt-kicking lol.
“The Archdiocese for the Military Services and Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty recently became aware of a U.S. Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief that expressly listed “Catholicism,” “Evangelical Christianity” and other religious groups as examples of “religious extremism” alongside groups such as “Al Qaeda”, “Hamas” and the “KKK.” The Archdiocese is astounded that Catholics were listed alongside groups that are, by their very mission and nature, violent and extremist.”
Pictured are slides from the actual DOD presentation.
Are US soldiers not allowed to go to Mass, then?
