Have you been to Confession recently? If not, is fear holding you back? This Advent, Relevant Radio invites you to consider making a good confession so that you can grow closer to the Lord when He comes into this world on Christmas.
If you haven’t gone to the sacrament in a while, Fr. Gordon offers guidance. Start by examining your conscience, ponder what kept you away, and what brings you back. In the confessional, be open and unafraid – it’s not just the priest, but Jesus himself you’re conversing with. 🙏
Remember that confession is a meeting with the Lord, a chance for absolution and renewal. If you encounter any challenges, remember, the grace of the sacrament transcends human imperfection.
Fr. John Gordon underscores the significance of this time as a period of grace and spiritual renewal. He emphasizes the importance of confession, drawing parallels with the Advent figures like John the Baptist, who symbolize preparation and repentance. 🕊️
Highlighting Jesus’ baptism by John as an act of solidarity with humanity, Fr. Gordon invites us to view confession not as a mere ritual but as an embrace of God’s infinite mercy. He reminds you that waiting in line for confession should be seen as eagerly as waiting for a concert or a new product release – it’s a queue to spiritual freedom and joy! 🌟
Fr. Gordon’s message is clear: Embrace confession this Advent, not as a burden, but as a beautiful opportunity to prepare your heart for Christmas, to encounter Jesus in a profound, personal way. It’s a spiritual game-changer!
