On a lighter note.
Hearing nun's confessions is like being stoned to death with popcorn.

Why did Saint Jerome make this remark?  I wonder. Marriage, a Sacrament, should surely be entered into with much , much more than a desire to avoid sleeping alone at night?
I wonder why he said that. Anyone?

It is curious, perhaps it's meant to be humorous.

The state of marriage is one that requires more virtue and constancy than any other. It is a perpetual exercise in mortification.

I think it is just a modest way of saying that the single life is preferred over marriage , but if one cannot stay pure/chaste  being single, then marriage is a better proposition.  Undecided My thought.

I am not too sure about that statement Patricia;  that "the single life is preferred over marriage". I think God calls each one of us to a life He sees suits us best. After all He did create  man and told him in Genesis 1:28 to  "...Be fruitful and multiply..." Smiley
If we choose not to marry because we want to dedicate ourselves to God, that is wonderful, but does it make it superior to marriage? hmm  Undecided

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God that inspires them all in every one. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
1 cor. 12: 4-6

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
1 Cor. 12: 12

Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God.
For great is the power of God; by the humble he is glorified.
What is too sublime for you, seek not, into things beyond your strength search not.
What is committed to you, attend to; for what is hidden is not your concern.
With what is too much for you meddle not, when shown things beyond human understanding.
Their own opinion has misled many, and false reasoning unbalanced their judgment
Where the pupil of the eye is missing, there is no light,
and where there is no knowledge, there is no wisdom.
Sirach 3:18-24

It is one of the glories of scripture that it can embrace many meanings in a single passage.
St. Thomas Aquinas

Oh, the quote attributed to St. Jerome.  Cheesy


'Frequent confession is the cause of great good to the soul, because it purifies it, heals it, and confirms it in the service of God: we ought not therefore to omit confession on our fixed days for any business whatsoever; but go to confession first, and to business afterwards, and the first will help the last.'

On Confession

Our Lord himself I saw in this venerable sacrament, I felt as if my chains fell, as those of St. Peter at the touch of the divine messenger. My God, what new scenes for my soul!
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

On Communion

"Without fear of any kind we have celebrated the Lord's supper because it cannot be missed; that is our law; we cannot live without the Lord's supper."

Question.

If after an examination of conscience, one is not able to find sin ( yes, I know  Smiley), but think of the saints, I am sure some of them were in that situation; how then does one approach the confessional? To say " Bless me father, for I have sinned" would not be quite correct and the priest cannot absolve you if there has been no sin committed, and yet weekly confession is advised?
