“I Felt the Love of Jesus Pouring Out”: Catholics Return to Confession – Catholic World Report

Whether they’re returning to confession after the pandemic or after falling away from their faith, Catholics have “no reason for fear.” Fr. Daniel Gee, who serves in the Diocese of Arlington, Virginia, says that all Catholics need the Sacrament of Penance and the graces that it offers. Along with three Catholics who shared their stories of returning to the confessional, Fr. Gee spoke with EWTN News In Depth on June 25. “If you want to be perfect as God the Father is perfect, you need your soul to be perfectly cleansed,” Fr. Gee stressed. “And in order to keep your soul cleansed, you need the sacramental grace of confession.” After growing distant in his faith, Charles Davidson, a professor, returned to confession after a quarter century. He didn’t go just anywhere for the sacrament: he stopped at the famous Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. Charles felt intimidated, but pushed past that to walk into the confessional.
