View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Pope urges use of Confession



Pope Benedict speaks of lepers - the "unclean" - and points out that leprosy can be a symbol for sin. Confession helps sinners to to reconcile - with God, and the community of faith.

I treasure the gift of Confession. It has helped to lift so many burdens from my soul.

Yeah, it does help you to feel better...plus it helps you to think twice when you are tempted (Gee, do I want to have to tell Father about that???)
