Have you had your SoulWOW yet?

It's almost Easter. The Church asks us to make a minimum of one SoulWOW (er, Confession) every year. If you so choose (remember, it's a minimum request--you can do more), then before Easter is The Time To Do It. As I dig deeper into my own dirty little self, I appreciate more and more the efficacy and efficiency of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Surely there are no more beautiful words on this earth: "I absolve you from your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."

God doesn't ask for lofty thoughts or passionate feelings (though they are both goods); he does ask for contrition, confession, absolution, and penance. Enjoy that WOW now!

(WOW. This diocese is taking Benedict's whole "technology and evangelization" thing seriously!)Thanks to Amy Welborn.
