62- Why to confess?

 

Vlog 62 – Why to confess?

 Hello my friend, I’m Victoria Bellido Durán, member of the Musical Group Flos Mariae, and today I want to give you my opinion about the subject that I entitled: “Why to confess?”.

My friend, my friend, come here, don’t hide, let’s talk clear you and I. What do you have against confession; why do you reject this extremely important sacrament? Oh, are you scared, embarrassed to go to confess? Doesn’t that mean that you’re aware that you’ve misbehaved? Oh, well, you say you’re afraid that the priest spill the beans about your sins.

My friend, the good priests aren’t to gossip nor pry into the life and sins of anybody; the good priests, the holy priests, they cling to their vocation, and they live to give to us, God Himself in the sacraments; they get up every morning to serve others, imitating Jesus, God, in everything. My friend, believe me, the good priests are too busy to murmur about you and others. Moreover, it is not necessary to be a priest to know the sins of others, because as Jesus said, “by their fruits you will know them”. My friend, your deeds speak for themselves. If you fear that the priest can tell your sins, you should be trembling with fear for what the people around you, the people who know you, can, or even, are saying about you.

My friend, is a very bad excuse to say that the priest will spill the beans, I say you that it’s smart to go to confession whenever one sins. Because when one receives the sacrament of Penance, God the Holy Spirit not only forgives us, but comforts us, and with the help of His Grace, we can be better and face the trials of life.

My friend, make a good examination of conscience and go to confess with a good priest, that they are, and this way, finally become reconciled with God, who waits, longs for you to return to live in His sanctifying grace.

My friend, go, go to confess!

My friend, thank you.

And always go ahead with faith.
