Look deeper

Perhaps all of us are guilty of focusing too much on only our actions and not our hearts when it comes to the sacrament of reconciliation. Our actions are important. But we need to look deeper. Our actions should make us stop and think, “Why did I do that? What does it say about me?” It is in the ‘heart’ - the secret, inner person - where we discover the source of our shameful actions. It takes a certain courage to look unflinchingly and honestly at ourselves. Can we do this?
