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.

Imagine a world where entitled professional victims

Defiantly process through the streets

Destroying people’s property monuments and statues

With the excuse of fighting against imaginary racism

At the gates of each town they place

A Trojan horse, filled with filthy rabid rats

And poisonous Satanic demons and monsters

Effeminate men pretend to become women

Masculine women pretend to become men

The Doctor stands by the horse prepared to

Brand people with the mark of the Beast

As high priestesses decapitate lambs and

Build shrines to goats

A mad group of clowns process

Through the streets chanting

War is peace Peace is war

Wrong is right Right is wrong

This is what always happens in

A world without walls

Hell has no walls

My REPOST of the week on Targeted Traffic HOW TO

Found this in my email today, just passing it along to interested readers here.

“Get more targeted traffic from social media?

A deep dive to find all the patterns in social media influencers.

One thing that stuck out was they were all using a smart bio link.

You see most social media platforms limit you to only one link in your profile.

With a smarter bio link page, you can send traffic to multiple pages”

A Haibun of Perpetual Flowers with Haiku

A Halo!

A Favorite white rose, living now, a flower!
Combine that thought with mystery of today; hidden, a secret of the rosary!  The Coronation!
Imagine the Mother of God forever crowned as Queen; no! Not ...
 a crown made with yellow gold; we call precious metal.  Think —a sweet fragrance saturating the air with several white vivid roses all aglow and strung together in the form of a crown — a crown of perpetual flowers that will never die.  

Glory of a rose
Enduring everlasting
A Crown for our Queen
God’s Masterpiece

My Parade of Poems — Vintage Baltimore Catechism

My parade of poems is based and inspired by The Baltimore Catechism. Catholics born before the Modern changes in the Vatican (approx. 1960) will remember learning their catechism from these text books.

One day not very long ago, (last week) I was thinking of the Haiku, a form of poetry that is popular here on WordPress and fun to write. Thinking of a theme, why not The Baltimore Catechism!

I thank dVerse along with other experts as Tanks Tuesday with Colleen for introducing several forms of poetry to me, now; in my advanced senior years. Not sure if she will approve an entire parade of Haiku’s or are they Senryu forms? Whatever! But as I said, inspired by the Baltimore Catechism … here is my parade.

Ta Da ♫
Haiku number 1
***
Created by God
Purpose to Know, Love, and Serve
Eternity Waits

Haiku number 2
***
Trinity One God
Creation — Angels their fall
Sin entered the world

Haiku number 3 
***
Forbidden by God
Willfully crime against Him
Beg daily prayer 

Number 4  
***
Help!  Saviour needed
Jesus born — dies to save us
Grace a gift from God

Number 5  
***
Faith, Hope, Charity
Virtues Gifts ours to receive
Third Person awaits

Number 6
***
Peace of soul to win
Treasures realized are yours
Mission accomplished

Number 7
***
Be smart do your part
All you have to do is ask
Think Pascal's wager

Billed by its organizers as the“biggest street party London has ever seen,”the rally drew thousands of participants from all walks of life unhappy with the draconian restrictions on gatherings and movement, and opposed to the government’s plans to introduce un-British‘vaccine passports’.

Rt.com reports: Actor and mayoral candidate Laurence Fox, who has promised to do away with Covid-19 restrictions entirely if elected, was an enthusiastic participant.
