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.

EXCITEMENT!

The theme of today EXCITEMENT its at AlwaysWright.

My little story may not be appreciated but still it is my story just the same!

After really thinking of all the events in my life, of which many were quite exciting. The one that, even today, gives me excitement the average person might not relate to is the day I found the Traditional Latin Mass.
After being led into through Vatican II, a man-centered service and not knowing where to turn, except to pray! Praying I did, finally after a long time, several years, in fact! Quite miraculously, I found Traditional Catholic Latin Chapel, the feeling was I was lost, but now I came home! It was and IS VERY EXCITING.

“Nun. Thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee: and they have not laid open thy iniquity, to excite thee to penance: but they have seen for thee false revelations and banishments.”
[Lamentations 2:14]

Breaking News happening concerning the Traditional Latin Mass

Francis has dropped a bombshell on the traditional Catholic community with his latest declaration in “Traditionis Custodes” severely restricting the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass (also known as the “extraordinary form”)

That news too is exciting to me, because we may be seeing the Second Coming of Christ soon, NOTICE I said MAY BE, what do I know! Not much but hoping!

It’s everywhere!

GEOMETRIC! shapes!

The story that goes with my photo, first what is more geometric than a trellis? Some years back while looking for something interesting to photograph, I took a picture of and through my trellis; with the help of my photo editor, added one bird for interest.

After that I continued walking around the property and next door was a basketball net, my grandsons played with, (yes, they live right next door, I am truly blessed). A few weeks later my son was working in the garage and I decided, why not take the picture, lots of geometric there too!

Thank you Terri Webster Schrandt who always is thinking of fun things to blog about.

Weekly Prompt

A Prompt, TreeSquare and quote bending together

This weekend I noticed on the weekly prompts the word reminded me of a tree right here round the corner from my house. Of course I grabbed my camera to capture a picture of it for #TreeSquare. Why? The tree bends and that was the word for weekly promtps weekend.

I did have a problem getting this image squared off, had to do a little hacking on the top, but take a look at the tree bending.

“The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when the storm had passed over”. Adsop

++++++ WHAT! This can’t be true!

Nwo Report

An aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and a Biden staffer have both reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 after meeting with Texas Democrats, despite all parties being vaccinated.

On Tuesday, Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill related the development to Fox News, with saying, “Yesterday, a fully vaccinated senior spokesperson in the speaker’s press office tested positive for COVID after contact with members of the Texas state legislature last week.”

Hammill noted the Speaker did not come in contact with the infected individuals.

“This individual has had no contact with the speaker since exposure. The entire press office is working remotely today with the exception of individuals who have had no exposure to the individual or have had a recent negative test. Our office will continue to follow the guidance of the Office of Attending Physician closely.”
