Confession, A Key To Healing
When Our Lord healed the man with leprosy, He manifested His divine power over sin and death. Outside of the man, was a sickness that was made visible through the disease. But inside the soul, sin is not seen, yet it is no less real. This is why Jesus always forgave sin first, and then healed second. We can look perfectly healthy in physical appearance, yet our insides may be rotting with the leprosy of sin. Only a good and holy Confession can heal us. Jesus, the Divine Physician, comes to make our soul whole.
Why do we find so many excuses not to confess our sin? Because the devil wants us to rot in sin. It makes his job a lot easier. So if you want the evil one to be the one to lead into eternal darkness after you die, skip confession altogether. Keep making excuses not to go. The powers of darkness will be there waiting for you when you draw your last breath, eager to finish off the job. Don't jeopardize your eternal salvation. Come back to regular confession.
Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
