Talking Therapy vs Catholic Confession

To make a comparison between “Talking Therapy” and the Catholic Sacrament of Confession, both begin with talking to a trained person about negative thoughts and feelings to make positive changes.

One is free while the other has a fee, and rightly a good therapist deserves their compensation. The priest on the other-hand is accustomed to waiting for his reward.

Talking with a True priest is done secretly, behind closed doors to diminish the pain of accusing ourselves of sinful deeds.

The talking therapy technique is face to face giving the professional an opportunity to categorize the situations as mental health problems in general. Talking therapies give people the chance to explore their thoughts and feelings and the effect they have on their behavior. Counseling of this type is probably ideal for people who are healthy but need help coping with a current crisis. While the person choosing Confession knows already, because of their faith, on the effect of their behavior due to their human weakness.

Both the priest or an occupational therapist will admit talking always helps people who are distressed by a complicated past or are currently having a conflict of conscience.

The most significant difference and benefits with the Sacrament of Confession are knowing we receive a restart in life, a brand new page to begin again. How do I know? The Bible tells us so! Speaking to the Church, “Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.”[John 20:23] Retained in the sense of the word meaning the penitent had no sorrow.

I imagine “sorrow” would be an emotion therapist enjoy seeing within their patient’s recovery, especially when dealing with “guilt.”

Protestants like to laugh at Catholics, and that too is good therapy, laughter is natural medicine. It lifts our spirits and makes us feel happy. They laugh at Catholics who often receive the Sacrament of Confession and leave the confessional with their RESTART; only to fall again. But in honestly those who opt an adventure of “Talking Therapy” also take that same walk over and over.

Remember too, those of you who believe in God, better to receive from Him an “E” for effort, than a “D” for despair.

#JusJoJan, SoCS, true story

Pondering Padre Pio, his story

Haven’t posted now for a few days, just been busy pondering instead. Here on WordPress, some interesting people come up with prompts to encourage us to write. Today I accept the challenge of one such prompt, “Movie Titles”;SoCS is asking to use the last title of the movie we watched. 

Last night I watched a Youtube movie titled “Padre Pio” for those who do not know this person all you need do is search the internet, he is one worth remembering. 

The link to the very long and moving movie is … https://tinyurl.com/sa7n7u5

The film and my pondering have haunted me with this thought: 

The Church teaches us that Jesus Christ suffered and died for ALL, but not all people care about it! In the Garden just before He was taken to begin His Passion of death, He saw our faces. Each and every one of us He saw. He knew who would appreciate His reason for coming into the world; His goal was not to live but to die for us. He began to sweat His Blood when He saw the faces of those who would not care. 

Thinking again, how there is no such thing as “Time” when it refers to God the thought of Him suffering just for me that day, centuries before I was born, overwhelms my mind today!

SoCS & JusJoJan and recipe to try!

Are you fasting or just hungry?  “This bowl is too hot, this one is too cold but this one is just right!”

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “ow.” 

If you find your tummy growling think about a nice bowl of vegetable egg flour soup for one.
Heat one cup of vegetable broth with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and a little soy together. Bring to a boil; while waiting to boil; mix one teaspoon of corn starch into a little cold water and stir. Add a pinch of salt and white pepper to suit your taste. Now beat one egg, and when the broth is raging mad and bubbly, slowly trickle in the beaten egg and corn starch, mixing everything together for that delicious BOWL of soup, on a SNOWY day or anytime. Use Chicken broth if you prefer. Make it your own by adding green onions, carrots, or …?…..

The Three Wise Men of today!

 The Three Wise MEN!

#1. In alphabetical order;   Hollywood actor Pierce Brosnan, who used to be a ‘Never Trumper’, has praised President Trump for the booming American economy.

*********

#2. Noah Feldman, Democrats Witness Feldman noted that “according to the Constitution, impeachment is a process, not a vote,” and that while a modest delay would not pose a problem, a lengthy delay would be a “serious problem.” 

“Impeachment as contemplated by the Constitution does not consist merely of the vote by the House, but of the process; sending articles to the Senate for trial. Both parts are necessary to make an impeachment under the Constitution: The House must send the articles and send managers to the Senate to prosecute the impeachment. And the Senate must hold a trial.”

*********

Finally #3 —  Jeff Van Drew, a Democrat, recently flipped to Republican over the impeachment (his last straw). Drew was saying of impeachment, “even if we start to do it, we also come to the point that we realize that nothing is going to happen in the Senate. So at the end of the day, it will be a failed process.”

Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God?  Whosoever, therefore, will be a friend of this world, becometh an enemy of God.

Need more time to find the CRIME!

Dems had changed the definition of impeachment to mean impeachment just because he won the election when it was fixed for Hillary to win. Not fair!
Dems new slogan and it rhymes: “Need more time to find the crime.”
