“I confess to almighty God

We prepare ourselves to listen to God’s Word and to celebrate and share the Eucharist by calling to mind our sins and remembering God’s mercy and forgiveness. Part of the nature of sin is to hide itself.  Through the years I have had two or three dozen people or more tell me that they have no sins. What foolishness! In praying this prayer with our minds and hearts — thoughts and feelings — we are more open and receptive to God’s Word, God’s grace, and the gift of Jesus in the sacrament of his Body and Blood.”
