Admonish the Sinner

Helping your children to make a good confession can be hard as a parent!   Sometimes they don’t even understand what they need to confess.   I have found by printing out some examinations of conscience written specifically for children before we go to confession can help them take a better look into their lives and help them grow closer to God. – Sue, Columbus, Ohio

I volunteer to run the confession area for our Catholic Women’s Conference.   We make sure to provide a peaceful place for women to prepare, give them examinations of conscience and have plenty of priests available.   Many women are afraid to go to confession, especially it it has been a long time since they last went, however seeing so many women getting in line really encourages them to take this important step in reconciling their relationship with God. – Rosemary, mom of 4, Columbus, Ohio

We would love to hear how you live out the Circle Of Mercy.
