Go to Confession, go to Confession. Non-Catholic Christians, from the heart, with true contrition get down
on your knees, go to your "prayer closets" and confess your
MORTAL sins to God...now!

I'll post some Youtubes with homilies about Confession.

Posted on 18 November 2012 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf



Before anything else, let it be said that, ďGod is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.Ē (1 Cor 10:13)

NowÖ

The greatest accomplishment of the Enemy of our souls is to deceive people that the Enemy doesnít exist Ö that there is no Hell Ö that people canít go to Hell Ö that no one is in Hell, blah blah blah.

Letís be clear about this. Catholics are obliged to believe in the existence of the Devil and of Hell. These are de fide doctrines taught by the Church without the possibility of error.

The Devil exists. Fallen angels hate you with a malice no human can imagine. They have an intellect that surpasses our mere human faculties in a way that we canít fathom. They never tire. They are relentless. They are real. If you donít believe in the existence of malicious fallen angels, you are in serious risk of joining them in Hell. This is no joke.

Hell is real. In Hell, the damned suffer the pain of sense and the pain of loss (hint: unending pain is a key feature of your eternity in Hell). We can choose to separate ourselves from God and go to Hell by sinning, by resisting grace, by failing to repent, by failing to do what we ought, by presuming that we are automatically saved. If, when you die Ė and you will die Ė you are not in the state of grace, if, when you die Ė and it is going to happen to you Ė you are not living the friendship of God, you will go to Hell. Once you are there, thatís it. There is no hope of ever changing your lot. There is no changing your mind. There is no possibility of leaving even after a million billion years.

If you donít believe in Hell, you will probably wind up there. And if you chose that fate, it would be better for you had you never been born (cf Matthew 26:24).

STOP. Spend a moment to examine your conscience.

NOW. Try to imagine what goes through the mind of the damned soul during his first 30 seconds in Hell.

I remind you of these harsh realities because I donít want to go to Hell.

Priests and bishops who donít teach about Hell will probably wind up there.

It is my job to keep as many of you as possible out of Hell.

I will therefore tell you about Hell and then echo St. Augustine, who told his flock ďNolo salvus esse sine vobis! Ö I donít want to be saved without you!Ē (s. 17.2)

We must be clear about the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell. Sure, we must also talk about heaven and goodness and joy and kitties and sunshine and birthday cakes. Letís get this Hell and Devil thing straightened out because itís been neglected for far too long.

We must also work to revive the Sacrament of Penance, which was instituted by Christ (John 20:23) as the ordinary way our sins would be forgiven.

Going to confession, making a sincere confession of all your mortal sins in kind and number, can keep you out of Hell. Got that?

GO TO CONFESSION.

What a victory for the demons of Hell it has been to run down the Sacrament of Penance until it is barely thought of in some parishes.

Fathers, if you are parish priests and have the obligation to hear confessions, hearing confessions can help to keep you out of Hell. If you are parish priests and you donít hear confessions or you wonít teach about confession, you will probably go to Hell. Just try to deny it. Just. Try.

Don't die in mortal sin. There is a way God
can return to your soul when you have sinned
mortally, it's called Confession. These times
are insane, sin is denied, put into law instead
of truly repented of and confessed to God.

Catholics go to Confession, we must do more. Non-Catholics repent from the heart and confess your mortal sins to God personally.

You have one soul people and it is eternal, where do you want to go? You choose it. Easy to remember, the sexual
sins are mortal sin.

excerpt from a message to the Tenderheart


November 18, 2012

...So many of you have fallen away. Millions have chosen to worship the Beast. They have been deceived by Satan, and all his minions. They will only realize the error of their ways upon their passing, and then it will be too late for them. They will be thrown into Hellís Fire, and tormented for all eternity. O My Little Ones, will you not accept My teachings? Will you not seek reading materials on matters pertaining to doctrine? How can you gamble with your souls in this way? Is your eternal destination not of the utmost importance? Children, wake up while there is still time. Hell exists. It is My prison. All the kings of the Earth have their prisons. Hell is mine. Is this fact so difficult to understand? I have engraved My laws upon your hearts, and many of you disobey Me. You think that My mercy will be granted to you even when you refuse to repent of your wrongdoings. No, Beloved. Perfect contrition of sin is necessary for you to be right with Me. You must also make reparation for all the harm you cause others. You would do well to remember this. When you hurt someone, you must make it up to them. Live accordingly. Be right with Me. Walk blameless before My sight.

Thank you Generation D.

We all agree....with the help of God's grace. The Blessed
Trinity chooses to give Mary all graces to dispense. Look
at the Promises of the Rosary! ANYONE can pray the rosary. You don't have to be Catholic and you can pray the rosary just about any time, walking, driving, etc. Search a how to pray the rosary
site. It takes 17 minutes to pray a rosary (5 decades).

Start with one decade if at first 5 seems a lot. rose rose rose

Fifteen Promises of the Rosary

In the thirteenth century, Saint Dominic and Blessed Alan received the following promises from Our Lady for all those who faithfully pray the Rosary:

1.To all those who shall pray my Rosary devoutly, I promise my special protection and great graces.
2.Those who shall persevere in the recitation of my Rosary will receive some special grace.
3.The Rosary will be a very powerful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin and dispel heresy.
4.The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
5.Those who trust themselves to me through the Rosary will not perish.
6.Whoever recites my Rosary devoutly reflecting on the mysteries, shall never be overwhelmed by misfortune. He will not experience the anger of God nor will he perish by an unprovided death. The sinner will be converted; the just will persevere in grace and merit eternal life.
7.Those truly devoted to my Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
8.Those who are faithful to recite my Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces and will share in the merits of the blessed.
9.I will deliver promptly from purgatory souls devoted to my Rosary.
10.True children of my Rosary will enjoy great glory in heaven.
11.What you shall ask through my Rosary you shall obtain.
12.To those who propagate my Rosary I promise aid in all their necessities.
13.I have obtained from my Son that all the members of the Rosary Confraternity shall have as their intercessors, in life and in death, the entire celestial court.
14.Those who recite my Rosary faithfully are my beloved children, the brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ.
15.Devotion to my Rosary is a special sign of predestination.

I try but the Protestants won't discuss it. "Blinders" on.

After Revelation 6:15-17 happens and it is soon says Heaven.
Protestants should enquire about Confession now to prepare.

How to Describe Confession to Protestants (Part 5 of Becoming Catholic)
Posted by Dr. Taylor Marshall


For Protestants, the most unknown aspect of Catholic devotional life is confession. Unless youíre Catholic, you cannot experience it. A Protestant can attend a Catholic baptism, confirmation, wedding, ordination, and Holy Mass; however, he cannot attend a confession or know what itís like until he actually makes one for the first time.


Now most Protestants have seen it in movies. You go into the wooden box, a door slides behind a screen, and the Catholic says, ďBless me Father for I have sinned, etc.Ē


Okay, thatís pretty much how it begins, but letís look at it from a devotional point of view Ė how it really goes for a Catholic.


Ideally, a Catholic makes a nightly examination of conscience every evening. This means that he prays to the Holy Spirit in order to remember his faults during the past day. He then prays an act of contrition at this moment with the intent of confessing these faults in confession.


Before entering the confessional (that is, the box), he prays to the Holy Spirit (and to Mary and other saints) that he might make a good confession and be given the gift of true repentance and contrition. My practice is to ask the Holy Spirit for the light to see all my sins. Then I ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to obtain for me the grace to be truly sorry for my sins. You see, confession isnít just about forgiveness of sins, itís also about growing in sacramental grace.


In the confessional, there is sometimes the option to go behind the screen or face to face (I always choose the screen). The priest will recite a prayer and then you say, ďBless me Father for I have sinned, it has been # weeks since my last confession and I accuse myself of the following sins.Ē


Next you list all your sins in kind and number. If the priest cannot hear you or understand you, heíll stop and ask questions. When you get to the end, you say, ďFor these sins and all those that I cannot remember, I humbly repent and ask for absolution, counsel, and penance.Ē


The priest will then give you some advice or encouragement. He may make a general judgment that your struggles are related to a common vice. If you cry, he will comfort you. If you are scared to confess a sin, you say, ďFather, Iím afraid to confess something.Ē Heíll walk you through it. If you are unsure if something was a sin or not, you ask him and talk it out. Itís very pastoral and safe. Then the priest gives you your penance. The penance is the sign that you wish to start a new life in Christ Ė that youíre going to make a change. The penance also shows a willingness to make reparation for the harm youíve caused (for example, to return stolen money or apologize to a wounded spouse). A common penance is ďThree Hail MaryísĒ or ďa decade of the RosaryĒ or ďThree Our Fathers so that youíll grow in the virtue of temperance.Ē


Then the priest says, ďNow please make an Act of Contrition.Ē This is a prayer you say to God out loud and the priest listens to you say it. Itís proof to him that you really are sorry for your sins and not just playing ďpinball CatholicismĒ (click here to see what I mean by that).


The Act of Contrition goes like this:
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven, and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who are all good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more and avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.
Then the priest gives you absolution: ďI absolve you of your sins in the name of the Father and of Son and of the Holy Spirit.Ē



The priest then tells you to go in peace and usually asks you to say a prayer for him.


After that, you leave the confessional and go into the church where you pray your penance quietly and pray about anything else that is on your heart.


Thatís confession. It is certainly one of my top three favorite things about Catholicism.


Godspeed,


Taylor Marshall, Ph.D.
