Confession Requires Courage
This morning I was sitting in the dentist's chair. I was having my teeth cleaned. From my chair, I could see a post-it stuck on the wall. I thought it said:
I'm thinking of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. But any kind of confession requires courage when you think of it.
But when I stood up and looked more closely at the note, I saw that it read:
That doesn't make sense. After you've humbled yourself, don't most people just want to crawl into a corner and die. Even the feeling you get after receiving absolution isn't courage.
I don't get it.
