Vocations, please!

I am not complaining. Let me say this right off of the bat, because someone will say that is what I am doing. Since I of late have been writing in strange metaphors that people cannot understand, I now feel the need to explain what I say ahead of time. So I am not complaining.

For the last two days I have been trying to confess at the Oblates of Saint Joseph in Pittston. For two days there has been no one there during the time they have set aside for confession, which is 3-6 pm.

Pray for vocations. Since priests are the ones who offer the sacraments, when the sacraments are unavailable, it is terrible thing. Just imagine a world without the sacraments, and thank God for the inestimable gift he has given us in Mother Church.

So make your next Rosary in this month of the Rosary one for vocations. Cuz we need them

We gave confessions every day at st. Michael's. Plus Fridays 5-5:45 and Sundays. You are a 'traddy' right?

Well that's good to know. But since the OSJ is 5 minutes from my office, they are easier to get to with my schedule.

What other times do they offer the sacrament?

If I wanted badly enough to confess my sins, and there were no confessions nearby, rather than carry the sin around with me, I would get down on my knees and confess to my Lord. I'm sure He would hear me, and absolve me.
Just a thought.

That's discouraging.

While that was a wonderful gesture Elaine... It's not complete until you confess to a priest...
