The way of humility and meekness
Dear Family of Mary!
I felt a strong sense that Our Lady wants us to remember her call to Confession. Confession is one of the 5 stones. It is such a powerful Sacrament, and so misunderstood and forgotten by many of us! Here is what Our Lady said to us in 2007 about Confession:
July 2, 2007
In the great love of God,
I come to you today to lead you
on the way of humility and meekness.
The first station on that way, my children, is confession.
Reject your arrogance
and kneel down before my Son.
Comprehend, my children,
that you have nothing
and you can do nothing.
The only thing that you have
and that you possess is sin…
Be cleansed and accept meekness and humility.
My Son could have won with strength,
but He chose meekness, humility and love.
Follow my Son
and give me your hands
so that, together,
we may climb the mountain* and win.
Our Lady couldn’t have been more clear. We desperately need confession, regularly and often!! If we understood how crippling our sins are, we would be confessing as much as possible!! Why? Because Jesus is waiting for us in the person of the priest, to take the full burden of our sin from our shoulders and heal us of all the calamity that our sin causes. Sin hobbles us from serving Jesus in these last days. We don’t want to be a burden to the Lord, but children who can help Him.
This Penitential Psalm will help us grow in our desire for confession:
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to thy steadfast love;
according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin!
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
and done that which is evil in thy sight,
so that thou art justified in thy sentence
and blameless in thy judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being;
therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
 Fill me with joy and gladness;
let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice.
 Hide thy face from my sins,
and blot out all my iniquities.
 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
 Cast me not away from thy presence,
and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
 Restore to me the joy of thy salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.
 Then I will teach transgressors thy ways,
and sinners will return to thee.
 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
thou God of my salvation,
and my tongue will sing aloud of thy deliverance.
 O Lord, open thou my lips,
and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
 For thou hast no delight in sacrifice;
were I to give a burnt offering, thou wouldst not be pleased.
 The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
 Do good to Zion in thy good pleasure;
rebuild the walls of Jerusalem,
 then wilt thou delight in right sacrifices,
in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings;
then bulls will be offered on thy altar.
Amen! Lord draw us to your Sacred Heart in Confession, where we will be forgiven, healed and renewed!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
