(The question of how often to go to the sacrament of confession is a very personal one for Catholics, made deep within one’s conscience, and covered by the anonymity of the sacrament itself. The author here, who wishes to remain anonymous, makes a case for weekly reception. Whatever we may decide, the conclusions he draws from his own practice are worth pondering. Many saints went weekly, or at least very regularly, and the fruits are, well, obvious. This theme also complements today’s feast of Mary Magdalene – patron saint of ‘metanoia’, repentance and conversion. Editor).
