I just got back from confession and I have been reflecting on the awesomeness
of this sacrament. I watched The Simpsons episode last night where Homer
accidentally burns down the church and Mr.Burns introduces Madison Avenue type
commercialization. You might wonder how I jumped from confession to The
Simpsons, well my mind often takes strange turns and I thought of how Madison
Avenue might promote confession.
- Got Sin?
- Want to be forgiven? Then it’s time to get shriven.
- Think and repent inside the box.
- Your sins you spill right through the grill.
- Reconciliation – new and improved name but still provides the same
cleaning power. Guaranteed to forgive all contritely confessed sins or your
money back. For those hard to reach spots try “Prayer and Fasting!”
Disclaimer: Offer only applies with validly ordained priests with faculties
from their Bishops. Current offer does not include temporal punishments due to
sin. See your CCC for details.
