Cleansing

What is the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation?

This sacrament forgives our sins, reconciles us to God and his people, and gives us the grace to not sin again. In John 20: 22b-23 Jesus is with the apostles, “he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”

Where do we start?

First we need to examine our conscience. There are many ways to do this: use the 10 Commandments as a guide, review the past few weeks and months , sit quietly and think of the times you have less than your best.

If you haven’t been in a while, tell the priest. He will talk you through the steps.

It’s important that we have contrition, that is, are sorry for our sins. We also need the desire to amend our ways so we don’t sin again. We say our sins aloud to the priest and then he offers us absolution and gives us a penance.

What do we receive in the sacrament?

Unbelievable grace. Forgiveness. The strength to not sin again.

Those are just a few gifts we receive and that why going to confession is so important and helpful.

If you are Catholic, consider going to receive the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation. If you are not Catholic, ask forgiveness of anyone you  have hurt and pray to receive grace to not to it again.

Wednesday Wisdom

Wednesday WisdomEpisode 66–Wednesday Wisdom

 

‘The Working Woman Radio Show’ recently kicked off a new feature of the podcast called ‘Wednesday Wisdom’.

It’s a time when I ask my listeners to give me their feedback about a particular question, and then I read and share the wisdom that they gave me on the show.  

But this December’s ‘Wednesday Wisdom’ will be a little different. The question’ for this month is ‘What are some life lessons that can be learned from 2020?’ and since this is the last show of the calendar year, I decided to share some of the personal wisdom I gleaned from my own observations and experiences, over the past year.

I want to share with you 12 life lessons that I have learned from this past year.

So let’s get started.

Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life

Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask:

– Can I set limits and still be a loving person?
– What are legitimate boundaries?
– What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?
– How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?
– Aren’t boundaries selfish?
– Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?

Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.
