You are such a goofball and I think that's wonderful.

Personally, I've never been to Confession. My Catholic education stopped before I got to that milestone. But I do agree that it's mostly about accountibility. Not such a bad idea.

Even though I'm Lutheran, we do have confession of sins, but it's a little different. It's right in the middle of the church service, and we do it silently. Then the pastor gives the whole congregation absolution from our sins. I think it would be kind of nice to have a one-to-one session with a priest to confess...but I'd need to bring along a box of tissues as well! I cry pretty easily.

Congratulations to Jude for his First Reconciliation! :)


Congrats to Jude! They grow up too fast. I grew up protestant and never really understood the whole confession thing. I had a great aunt who was catholic and she went weekly to confess. I don't think she had that sinful a life, but you never know.


I am a 20 yr mom! I do think you should confess that you pr-confessed! See you tomorrow.


Ok I have to confess that I like this type of confession better. I could NEVER do what your second grader is going to do! Priest can be WAY to scary!

Well hope you have a great weekend~

I had this exact quandry 2 years ago. I went and sat down and confessed that I really didn't believe in confession, but that my kid was looking so I'd appreciate if he played along so my kid would be happy as opposed to disillusioned (like me). He was a real sport, we chatted, he made with the Sign of the Cross, and I was on my way back to my brightly smiling child. Everyone was happy...

Since the kids are going to be hearing it, maybe confess to the pre-confession and tell them how good it felt doing it again. Win-win.

I loved this post! And as a non-Catholic, it really helped me understand the ideas behind confession in that context.

Sooo, how did it go?
