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.

Look what happened to SCROOGE!

SYW and the question are:

What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?

Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?  If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part. 

This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?

Is there is a person or god connected with your holiday? 

  • Who are they and do you believe in them?
  • If you do not believe in these people or gods, does the celebration/honoring of that being, bother you in any way (e.g., ignored, dismissed, angry, etc.)?

Holiday blues, what is that?

My favorite beverage is, if thirsty I like water if eating pasta I enjoy a glass of Arbor Mist, Zinfandel!

Pumpkin Spice, sure, why not?

God?  My take on that  –>  The past few evenings, I have been tuning in to a few classic Christmas movies; hymns and notice the joy just the word “Christmas” brings. The word means Christ’s Mass on Christmas Day. Such a compelling Holy/Holiday, the unbelievers will never get rid of the word Christmas. Not sure why “unbelievers” are called unbelievers since they, too, believe; they decorate, celebrate as we all do in their way. At least the ones I know, even the stores, streets, homes, everything.

Look what happened to SCROOGE!

Notice that there is currently a move to change the wording of the Christmas parade to Winder parade, it might work for a short time, but the Christmas parade will return just like when they tried to change Christmas trees to Holiday trees, most stores again refer to them as Christmas trees.  It is what it is, CHRISTMAS!

It doesn’t sound correct to even say, Merry Winter everyone!  ♫

Pretty Scary Stuff Divulged

What’s wrong beside everything?

The word from FOWC today is interesting to me since I just read about China’s discovery. AND THE WORD IS DIVULGE!
Let me divulge a Biblical prophecy ABOUT THE BEAST written in the book of Apocalypse chapter 13, verse 13 — ” And he did great signs so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth in the sight of men.”

The Bible carries scary words, but following the link below broadens them.

Doomsday stuff, you say … TIME WILL TELL!

The End of the World

Today Nov. 24 we are reminded it is the end of the liturgical year. Today we remember by Holy Mother Church of the end of the world; the Last Judgment. Those of us who attend the Mass of All Times will hear again about THE END.
Jesus Christ, who one day suffered agony in the Garden of Olives because He saw all the faces of those He created that ignored Him.
Are you one of them?  Did YOU make Him cry?

DidI
He could have opened Heaven for all of us, by a wave of His hand, but then we would never know His Infinite Love for us. Therefore, He chooses to be lashed, having His innocent skin pulled away and opened for all to see. Yet we close our eyes to His pain; cry at the sight of our little pain when we being bruised.

The cross He carried was not as pictured, smooth as silk, it was splintery, rugged/uneven, damp since it was soaked with our sins. Sins from the beginning of Adam/Eve to the last man. So heavy He fell, not once but three times. When we fall, we too must get up, pick up our cross, and follow Him. Ask for help when we fall, as Simon of Cyrene helped Jesus.
The tearing off of His garment ensue His precious Blood to flow again.
Slamming His torn body upon His Cross; oh those nails pounding into His hands and feet as many heckle, while others cry. Consider also the lifting of His Cross and not gently placing it into the ground. Imagine all this suffering, now the jarring motion, rough planting of His Cross at the bones of Adam and Eve.

There stood three crosses, He as always is found near sinners, one repenting, another rebel, significant of today, many repent, while most scoff and reject. Which of the two sinners are you and I, is the question?

Sharing My World — SYW

SYW Share Your World and the questions are below; with my answers.  Nice to know that someone wants to know what I think.  I love it!

  1. Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise): Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions).

If no, there is no anything as Truth or Facts, just whatever pleases man, like we have today. 

  1. Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul?

Humans have an immortal soul that will live forever either in Heaven or Hell at the end of time; Animals have a mortal soul that dies when they die. However, I like to believe that nothing on earth is more significant than what is in Heaven, therefore perhaps animals are in Heaven, hopefully for those who make it to Heaven God will allow our pets to be there, wishful thinking on my part. 

  1. Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”)

Because God has already judged them.

  1. Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader.  Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating. While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence.

An ideal leader, in my opinion, is anyone who keeps or at least TRIES to keep the ten Commandments, since if that should ever happen, we will be blessed by God and have peace throughout the entire world. Not just talk about it but encourage it. We don’t live in a perfect world, and my ideal is a dream, so I will continue to vote for the lesser of the two evils.

The Big Question IS …

I recently watched a clip of Pelosi asking Trump to defend himself.

Does he even know the charge? I wonder since I have been waiting to hear what it was, and so far, it must be a secret.  

Now this tidbit from.     link

Morrison, who was on the July 25 Trump-Zelensky call testified in Schiff’s secret basement star chamber that nothing illegal was discussed on the Trump-Zelensky phone call.

This is why Schiff held his secret hearings behind closed doors in a basement.

Schiff doesn’t want the American public to know that President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was completely above board.

How dishonest can one be?

No wonder my democratic friends from Chicago, (where I was born and raised) are voting for Trump next time around.

Politics

The Telephone Game

What is going on IS: Have you ever played or watch your children, grandchildren sit in a circle and play the TELEPHONE GAME?


If not, you missed great fun to play or watch,  it works like this; someone whispers into the first child a sentence and they, in turn, whisper exactly what was told to them to the child sitting next to them, and so on till the last child stands up and tells to all present what he/she has been told. That is absolutely what we see from these “politicians” a game they play over and over.

Beware of who you vote for, are these really the kind of people you want to run our Country, playing games; do you want a socialist America?
If you fear you will lose friends and family members by voting your conscience, nod your head to your friends, family, associates and go into that private box and vote to “Make American Great Again!”
