Going to Confession with Pope Francis

“Do not be afraid of Confession! When one … finishes Confession one leaves free, grand, beautiful, forgiven, candid, happy.  This is the beauty of Confession!  I would like to ask you – but don’t say it aloud, everyone respond in their heart: when was the last time you made your Confession?   Everyone think about it … Two days, two weeks, two years, twenty years, forty years?  Everyone count, everyone say ‘when was the last time I went to Confession?’  And if much time has passed, do not lose another day.  Go, the priest will be good.  Jesus is there, and Jesus is more benevolent than priests, Jesus receives you, he receives you with so much love.  Be courageous and go to Confession!”.  I am telling you: each time we go to Confession, God embraces us. God rejoices! Let us go forward on this road. May God bless you.”
(St Peter’s Rome, February 2014)
