Advice from St. Faustina
Three Steps to a Good Confession


 St. Faustina offers three counsels to the soul that truly desires to benefit from Confession.

1. COMPLETE SINCERITY AND OPENNESS--Even the holiest and wisest confessor cannot forcibly pour into the soul what he desires if it is not sincere and open. An insincere, secretive soul risks great dangers in the spiritual life, and even the Lord Jesus Himself does not give Himself to such a soul on a higher level, because He knows it would derive no benefit from these special graces.

2. HUMILITY-- A soul does not benefit as it should from the sacrament of Confession if it is not humble. Pride keeps it in darkness. The soul neither knows how, nor is it willing, to probe with precision the depths of its own misery. It puts on a mask and avoids everything that might bring it recovery.

3. OBEDIENCE-- A disobedient soul will win no victory, even if the Lord Jesus himself, in person, were to hear its confession. The most experienced confessor will be of no help whatsoever to such a soul. The disobedient soul exposes itself to great misfortunes; it will make no progress toward perfection, nor will it succeed in the spiritual life. God lavishes His graces most generously upon the soul, but it must be an obedient soul. (#113)

Teaching Young Children About the Mass

David and Marilyn Reed will be available after Mass this Sunday with copies of their book " How to Love Jesus at Mass" a picture book for young children to help them learn about the Mass. A Parents' Guide is also available.



It isn't too soon to start  thinking about and registering for this year's Triduum Retreat.  Participate in the profound services of Holy Week, beginning with the Mass of the Eucharist on Holy Thursday evening, then spend an hour with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.  On Good Friday accompany Him on the  Walking Way of the Cross and Service of the Passion.  Spend Holy Saturday  morning consoling the Blessed Mother during the Rosary of the Sorrowful Mother.  And on Easter Sunday leave the darkness of the Tomb for the glory of the Resurrection at the Easter Vigil. 

All of these Holy Week services are open to the public.  Triduum retreatants are encouraged to enter into and live the Paschal Mystery in a more profound way while spending quiet time on the grounds of the Mission.
