Reverend Lucy Natasha

Reverend Lucy Natasha, the founder and overseer of Prophetic Latter Glory Ministries International is more famous for her classy flamboyant look than her pastoral work…

Anyway, today she thought it was OK to feed her flock with her fleshy mellow thighs than with manna or the world or god.

How can I explain to My Protestant Friends why Catholics go to Confession?

How can I explain to My Protestant Friends why Catholics go to Confession?

Full Question

How can I explain to Protestant friends why Catholics go to confession? They ask, “Can’t God forgive your sins directly?”

Answer

Fr. Eamon Tobin has written in The Sacrament of Penance:

In response to this question, the first remark I often make is, “Why do we not object to having a mediator, another man, at the sacrament of baptism? Why don’t we just baptize ourselves?” Baptism, among other things, cleanses us of sin. The sacrament of reconciliation is like a second baptism; it cleanses us of post-baptismal sin. If we have no objections to another man’s mediating to us God’s grace in the sacrament of baptism, why should we object to another man’s mediating God’s grace in the sacrament of reconciliation?

The primary reason, however, why the Catholic Church asks her members to confess their sins to a priest is simply because the Church has always believed that sin, however private, is a community affair. Every sin, however small, wounds the Body of Christ, the members of the Church. . . . When any of its members sin, they all suffer. Moreover, because my sins wound the community and diminish its effectiveness, reconciliation must include the community and not just God. In the confessional, the priest is the representative of God andof the community. In the confessional, the priest represents the whole Christ, the Head (Jesus) and the members (the Church). [Emphases added]

Strictly speaking, there is no such thing as a “private” sin—not in the sense of a sin that affects nobody but myself. There are secret sins, but there are none which are matters affecting “only myself and God.” Likewise, our penitence benefits the whole Church, so we celebrate reconciliation communally.

Catholic: THE ANGELUS

Catholic: THE ANGELUS

In the name of the Father + and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary;
And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary, full of grace: The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Behold, the handmaid of the Lord;
Be it done to me according to your word.
Hail Mary….

And the Word was made flesh (kneel)
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary….

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

LET US PRAY
Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord, Your grace unto our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Your Son, was made known by the message of an Angel, may by His Passion and Cross + be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ, our Lord, Amen.
