Through the Sacrament of Confession, we are forgiven our sins. We also receive God’s grace to fight against temptation. The great saints, who were filled with love of God and seemed for the most part to have avoided mortal sins, confessed very frequently, because the Sacrament helped them grow in God’s grace. Confession reveals to us our need for God’s help in the “little things” of the day and leads us to ask for that help.
Remember, in this Sacrament you are fundamentally talking to God through the priest. God loves you, wishes to forgive you, and desires to embrace you with the joy with which the prodigal son was embraced in Jesus’ parable (Lk 15:11-32).
Moreover, know that you will not say anything that the priest has not heard before. If you feel nervous or uncomfortable, share that with the priest and he will help you to overcome that and to help you make a “good” Confession.
You will never succeed in life if you try to hide your sins. Confess them and give them up; then God will show mercy to you. (Proverbs 28:13)
தம் குற்றப் பழிகளை மூடிமறைப்பவரின் வாழ்க்கை வளம் பெறாது; அவற்றை ஒப்புக்கொண்டு விட்டுவிடுகிறவர் கடவளின் இரக்கம் பெறுவார்.(நீ:மொ:28-13)
