Why do we Need to Go to Confession? – Nov 15 – Homily – Fr Matthias

Views 181


Fr Matthias gives the homily at Bloomington, IN, on Nov 15, 2023, where he keys off the command of Jesus in today's gospel reading to "Go show yourselves to the priests." to underscore the need to go to our priests for sacramental confession. This is to be freed from mortal and venial sin and to avoid falling back into sin, to be freed from any doubt whether we have committed a sin, and thus grow in holiness.

Ave Maria!
