Would you believe me if I told you that the Lord spoke to me with that? I go to mass daily to remind myself to live a holy life. Every day I confess my sins at the altar along with the rest of the congregation. "I confess to Almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned..."
Every day I still sin. Before and after mass...sometimes even during! Yes, in faith I believe my venial sins wash away at mass, but there is residue that still builds up to a gunk of fat that I need to get off. A deep cleanse is good every so often. In fact, it's necessary. Confession is that deep cleanse.
Just as I need to throw my bottle brush for a somewhat intense heat, wash, and dry process, my soul needs a good scrub down. I love confession. You let it all out and it doesn't come back with you. Once the Lord forgives, He forgets. Everything is clearer. Everything is brighter. Today's cleaning session reminded me that I need to go to confession and get this funky fat off of me. That way, I will be clean enough to help clean others as well. As long as I keep trying to keep the fat off, people will see how nice and effective...the bottle brush can be hahaha. My credibility is restored and I can fulfill the purpose I was created for. If I'm headed to heaven, you're coming with!
PS. Mystagoging while cleaning reminded me to lift up all my work and St. Therese will know what to do with it. Prayed that my little deeds would help souls in purgatory. Sorry, just wanted to throw that in there.
What's #30daysofmystagogia? You can refer back to my blog on "About Time" to understand the meaning behind this project.
