In Twelve Step movements we usually hear a lot about cleaning up the past, and this in important in 4th and 5th Step work. Past hurts, resentment and guilt all can clog up and retard your spiritual development. Not to mention unconfessed sins can perhaps condemn you if they are mortal.
In the Spirit Daily piece linked to above, the writer describes how Jesus can help you clean up your past through Confession.
This is the season of Advent. We must prepare for the coming of the Lord. Clean up your life by examining your conscience and going to Confession before Christmas.Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics?
