My big boy has had two important days really close together. First, on Friday, he turned 8 and today, he's making his first reconciliation. I am so excited for him :o) For a while now, we've been practicing his act of contrition and a few days ago, he asked me if I could help him understand what it all meant. Sure, "I said. It starts, Oh, my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended thee. That means," I told him, " that I am sorry with all my heart for my sins." to which he said, "That makes sense. I'm glad I asked because I thought it was, Oh my God, I'm hardly sorry for having offended thee, and that didn't sound very sorry." So cute!
If you have a moment, please say a little prayer for him. Thanks :0)
