Response to No Vested Interest (Reply #1)

2. You're not pulling my leg, are you?

I had no idea how that notion might be received. I like it and it MIGHT benefit someone else besides me, although I don't know that either.

Besides all the other garbage that went on, that last diocesan priest even accused me of lying to him at confession. I never so much as took communion if I couldn't control my reactions to the provokers. I didn't even tell him why I was still angry with someone until he asked me, and I never divulged the name. Well, that would've been unnecessary because he already knew, it was such a big stink.

So while I'm at it, I'll confess here that the very first thing I will have to say next time regardless of the situation: "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been at least 5 years (or 8 or 10 or 15....) since my last confession...." I really miss it. Not to mention I also miss the old-fashioned confessionals where things were conducted in a formal enough manner that you felt more like something had actually happened. This stuff about sitting face to face and just having a normal conversation doesn't suit me at all. If I wanted a regular conversation, I'd call up a friend or visit them for a little face time. Modern casual forms do an injustice to everyone and everything considered.
