Why Confession is a Good Thing

Once in a while Mark Shea has something really good on his blog. Here is one that I think makes alot of sense. It is a clip from ER that shows that when it comes right down to it and someone is knocking on death's door they really, really want to know that they are forgiven. No amount of pius platitudes or feel good religion can compare to hearing a priest say "I absolve you of your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Check out the clip:

I Have Returned

After being chastised by a number of people for not posting after my return home after my pilgrimage to the Holy Land I decided I better say something. It was an amazing pilgimage with many, many graced moments. God surely treats me much better than I deserve.

I hope to have a few posts for you soon, but it will be fairly slow until after Holy Week.
