It seems to me that we should all try to ensure that we make a good and full Confession this weekend, so that we start the Church’s New Year with as clean a soul as possible . . . so check now when Confessions are heard in whichever Church it is you go to, and then make sure that you get there . . . and also make sure that you’ve had plenty of time to think things through in advance, so that you make a full, and honest, confession.
Do that, and you are starting the New Year off well, which must improve your chances of getting some long-term benefits out of the forthcoming year . . . and perhaps even of improving your own spiritual life during the year as well.
As I said . . . just a thought.
