“Bless me Father, for I have sinned…”


What happens in the confessional, stays in the confessional. It’s like Vegas, minus the blackjack and hookers. 

I’ve never once gone to confession, and the reason for that is, I always found it a bit creepy. I understand the point of it, it’s to ask for forgiveness and find absolution, all well and good, but telling someone the innermost secrets of my soul, including but not limited to, dirty thoughts I’ve had, nasty things I’ve said about other people, if I’ve had premarital sex or not…no. Just no.

I’m not religious anyway, so there would be no point in me doing it, but when I went to Catholic school, when we’d have mass in the local parish church, it was always offered. I knew a few girls that went, but I never did. Like I said, something about it unnerved me, and continues to even now. Obviously, if you’re a practicing Catholic, you probably find great comfort in it (it IS a sacrament), which is great. For me, however, it’s a no go.

    Eventhough, I’m not Christian\Catholic and I was raised in a Muslim household I think confession is interesting. It’s admirable to those who feel comfortable enough to share that side of themselves with someone else. I’m not sure if I am all that courageous though. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with not doing it either. To each his/her own.
