Confession is good for the soul, and maybe a scholarship
By Mary DeTurris Poust
As I sat in the chapel before Mass last night, waiting to go to confession, I couldn't help but feel heartened by the fact that there were so many of us there -- more than a dozen of all different ages -- that it would be tough to get us all in before Mass started. A half-hour later, as I left the chapel with my two older children, I felt so much lighter than I did when I walked in. But you know how that goes. Confession is not only good for the soul; it's good for the head and maybe even the body. It's just plain good.
The image that kept replaying in my head while I was sitting there reflecting and waiting my turn was from the above video, one of the entries in the iConfess scholarship contest (which I wrote about previously HERE) promoting the All-Day Confession event taking place in the Archdiocese of New York and dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Centre tomorrow, April 18.
