Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in confession.

Today somebody sent me a fictional "conversation between a student and a lecturer" which she told me is worth reading and it was.
There was something about darkness being the absence of light. 
Allegorically, sin, which is darkness is the absence of light which is God. crucifix

'I am at the sea-shore; a drop of water is suspended from my finger. I ask this water: Poor drop, where would you wish to be? It replies: In the sea. And what do I in answer to this appeal? I shake my finger and let the poor little drop fall into the sea. Now, I ask you, is it not true that this drop of water is in the sea? Certainly it is there; but go and seek it, now that it is lost in the ocean, its centre. If it had a tongue, what would it say? Deduce the consequence and apply the parable to yourself. Lose sight of the heavens, the earth, the sea and its rivers, and all created things, and permit this soul that God has given you to lose herself in this infinitely great and good God Who is her first cause.'

'It is never appropriate to speak about the parts of the body that must always be kept hidden and about certain bodily necessities to which nature has subjected all of us or even to name them. If sometimes you cannot avoid this in the case of a sick person or someone who is indisposed, do so in such a courteous manner that the terms you use cannot offend against decorum.'

St. Jean Baptiste de la Salle

This quote is one after my own heart; I couldn't agree more with St. Jean Baptiste de la Salle.  There are many people who see nothing wrong with such "crude talk" as I refer to them. I heard a mother talk to her child once in such explicit terms, repeatedly telling the child to do the deed in a loud voice. I did not know where to look; I felt so completely put off and uncomfortable in that compound I wanted to turn and walk away but I had just arrived for a visit and had no choice but to stay. Sad

"Priests have received a power which God has given neither to angels nor to archangels.
 It was said to them: ‘Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;
 and whatsoever you shall loose, shall be loosed.’
Temporal rulers have indeed the power of binding; but they can only bind the body.
Priests, in contrast, can bind with a bond which pertains to the soul itself and transcends the very heavens.
Did [God] not give them all the powers of heaven?...
What greater power is there than this?
 The Father has given all judgment to the Son.
And now I see the Son placing all this power in the hands of men.
 They are raised to this dignity as if they were already gathered up to heaven"

"O Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, and our dear Mother! O all ye holy angels, who, by your adoration in our churches, make up for the little love which your God and our Saviour receives from men, obtain for us the grace to comprehend a little the love of Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament."

As you can see Shin, quotations about The Holy Eucharist are simply irrisistible. Smiley
