Confession before Christmas

St. John the Baptist by Lippo Memmi

Our first readers’ poll has produced the following interesting results:

1) Two out of three readers have confidence in our poll-tallying integrity!

2) There are many more sinners out there than Zorn-haters, egg-nog pounders, or Senate-seat customers

Coach Zorn gets to keep his job (for now)! Everybody puts brandy in their egg nog! Senator is a tough job, but someone has to do it!

Given the overwhelming interest, let’s talk turkey about going to confession…

1) Remember that this helpful website offer an handy, easily-accessed examination of conscience (click Examen above).

2) One good place to go to Confession before Christmas is St. Mary of the Assumption, 14908 Main St., Upper Marlboro, Md. There will be a priest in the confessional from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, December 20.

Never be afraid to go Confession, even if you don’t remember exactly what to say. The priest will help you and be patient with you.

(If the priest isn’t nice to you, tell him that he has to go to Confession for being a mean priest!)

Also, remember: When in doubt, don’t leave it out.

Get everything off your chest. God forgives us when we ask for mercy.

One thought on “Confession before Christmas

  1. Fr. White, you are by far the nicest priest with the best blog. Your readers,parishoners and fans, may be interested to know that your patient self will be hearing confessions at St. Bernadette’s in Silver Spring this Sunday at 5pm. Perhaps they can’t make it on Saturday and are not interested in the Redskins anymore this season.
