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.

Ah! Another Challenge, dVerse

The Day the Trees Spoke!

Here at WordPress with dVerse we are challenged to write a prose with 144 words only using the phrase “These memories were left here with the trees” — the line from the poem “How to Write a Poem in a Time of War.” dVerse calls it prose from poetry.

+++++++++++ 144 words below ++++++++++++

As the story is told, there existed one man, one woman, Adam and Eve. Living in a lush garden, without cares everything perfect; even the fiercest animals were gentle and kind.
God gave them one commandment, not to touch or eat of the tree standing there. Delightful to look at but deadly!
Curiosity lost; with the touching of the tree, fruit eaten; the downfall of the human race.
Not the end! But the beginning!
God in His mercy did not curse the trees; instead wrought our salvation, offering another chance to humanity by the use of a tree.
Listen now to the crackling of the leaves underfoot as they searched for one specific an exceptional tree, fashioned to form the Cross to hold the Divine Body of God. The trees in the forest spoke, and “These memories were left here with the trees” FOREVER!

Is Anti-Christ HERE?

Everyone who reads my blog should know by now that, although I am a Catholic, I am traditional, meaning I don’t believe the new teachings of Vatican II.

The Vatican will host a meeting on 14 May 2020 in the Paul VI Hall to reflect on the theme “Reinventing the Global Educational Alliance”.

Catholic, Protestant or Atheist this should concern YOU!

Ragtag Daily Prompt / RDP, Supernatural Reality

Who sits in the temple of God?

The prompt word today is…SCHISM.

 

Most people don’t know or worse care

of schism the most significant division so

 grand that it is even warned to us in the Bible.

+++++++++++

Bible. “Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.” (The Chair of St. Peter, First Pope, THE ROCK”)

2nd Epistle of St Paul to the Thessalonians Chapter 2

Is it any wonder many are in awe at the things the person sitting in the Chair, says or does.  Vatican II, the New religion they call “catholic.”

Are we really that close?

Sorry…the Devil made me write it!

A Little SATIRE here!

The left says children rot in cages
blind to the fact that children also
are yanked out of their mother’s womb; body parts sold.
If their parts are valuable to persons enjoying life, why are these children not considered humans? Would you want a monkey’s kidney, heart, or liver in the body of your loved one?

I take that back, since these days many don’t know if their offspring are male or female, perhaps soon, hmm!  Did they give birth to a monkey or giraffe?  Or better a parrot, the left is good at parroting.

Await the next fad/madness, “racist” is on it last. The future birth certificate will
read: Check one: gender; known or unknown, species; human or robot, all to be determined through the influence of our public education.

Soon the “racist” fad will be formally finished just waiting for CNN to tell us.

ALERT, flash, breaking news NOW! The word RACIST lost all its guts; now we know everyone is a racist.
