Why You Should Go to Confession

How long has it been since your last confession? Don’t tell ME — go tell the priest in the confessional! This week I am talking candidly about some of the excuses we make for not going to confession, but mostly just trying to encourage you to take advantage of this life-giving, soul-healing sacrament that pours real grace into your soul.

I am not a theologian! Here is the link to the Bishop Robert Barron video I mentioned, explaining why we confess our sins to a priest. Here is another great explanation from Fr. Mike Schmitz.

Do you have an encouraging story to share about confession? Let me know and I can share it with others on a future episode! In the meantime, get yourself to confession and let me know how awesome you feel afterwards! 🙂

Here is the link to the radio interview I did last week, when I messed up my alarm and accidentally overslept.
