Sunday Scriber 20 (Form of Confession)

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti

"Peace be to you." This being the first week of 2009 and customarily the first week of self-imposed resolutions to renew oneself, I have a special treat to share. Get ready for something useful courtesy of the Catholic Church. If you're like me, then in the past year you've said and done some things that now you wish you hadn't. So you feel like you need forgiveness and you don't see the sense in paying a counselor $300.00. Well, there are options. Have you ever considered sharing your transgressions with a Catholic priest? Don't know how to start the conversation? Keep reading. Today I am transcribing from my 1963 Saint Joseph Daily Missal the "Form of Confession." ***Say first: "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. It is (state the time) since my last confession;" then, confess your sins. Do not use the words, "several times" or "quite often," or similar expressions. Add at the end: "For these, and all the sins of my past life, especially (here mention, in general, sins against charity, obedience, purity, of anger, etc.) I am heartily sorry." Always try to make a perfect act of contrition based upon the perfect love of God.

Every now and then I read the Tacoma Atheists website because I'm curious about how others perceive things.

I think it would be helpful to compare that website content and style of writing to the following site that offers a Catholic perspective on daily essentials, namely wisdom: www.bishopsheen.excerptsofinri.com.

About

This is my real-time novel, "Idealism in Tacoma," which will attempt to sort out the virtual new order I discovered in local blogs and in local 'hoods. I welcome you to join me as I press on in search of answers to the ongoing question: "Is it new?"

NEW! for 2011:
"QUANTUM FOAM," the second real-time novel by Mofo from the Hood, is happening now!

"For whatever mysterious reason, I must act beyond the role of spectator. Something beyond a portable history must be explored.

Therefore in order for me to define the concepts and categories of realities beyond the realm of my real-time novel "Idealism in Tacoma," a wholly other discourse must take form.

Ladies and whatever, let us go forth into the unknown dimension of imagination. I hereby offer you my all new materialist inspired "out of nothing" real-time novel: 'QUANTUM FOAM'."

Also For Your Enjoyment:

*MFTH was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington USA. As a lifelong resident, uninspired by money, power, or fame, he eventually resorted to reading internet blogs, sometimes at the public library. In May, 2008, during the Great Recession, he started "Mofo from the Hood's Blog" on FeedTacoma.com, because it was free. If this blog ever helps him to attain money, power, and fame, he will probably stay in Tacoma.
