Need to Examine Your Conscience, Minus an App?

Yes, there's an app for that... but what if you don't want to or can't use an app? Well, then I might have the right website for you. My friend Andrew has been working hard on a website (Catholics Confess) that will help you properly examine your conscience and it does something that the app I was previously using (the iConfession) doesn't... it allows you to write the number of times you've committed a particular sin to make a proper confession.

I've been through this website more than once, and even used it to examine my conscience for today's confession, so I can attest to it being very helpful. I even looked at Fr. Z's tips for a good examination of conscience which is also included in the website. By the way, I also went through the Youth option (yes, there are options based on your age) and was glad to see that it was tailored to teenagers so there is no excuse not to use it. :)

And a friendly reminder, Lent is coming up and it's the perfect time to go to confession if you haven't for a while. I know some of you aren't like me, at confession every two weeks (even if it's the "smallest venial sins" -- or so says my usual confessor) and wait a long time but please don't. It feels amazing to confess, to show that you're truly sorry for your sins, and to know that in being absolved you are able to receive the Eucharist. I've seen many adults go to confession for the first time in decades (I'm sort of a magnet for people who have gone over 25 years without confessing) and they come out with tears in their eyes and with a smile on their face. It's one of the best feelings so... what are you waiting for? Make use of Catholics Confess as many times as you'd like. It's literally good for your soul. :)

Alright, now that I've talked the talk, I'm going to go walk the (mile) walk. It's off to confessions for this sinner. :)

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend. :)

As always, thanks for reading and God Bless. :D
