wow. i didn't expect to start crying on the first response.
label? i didn't realized i was. maybe your right about that.
i do try and be the best person (loving, giving, supportive, as God would want me to be).
i had never read a passage like that. Thank you that helps a little.
Am I catholic? I wish i could go to mass but that just make me more depressed because I can't be included. It just makes me sad and depressed and a constant reminder that i failed.
No I am not un-invited, it is just no matter how many confessions i can never receive communion because i broke the sacrament of marriage. I can do everything except communion. I don't really like other churches, I have been to baptist, pentacostal, church of christ, etc.. before I married. I really do like the prayer, the meditation, the rosary. I was pretty grounded in my faith. Mass three times a week, was in the church choir, even taught for 2 years at the catholic school.
I can't go back.
which brings me to your post, how does events that happened a long time ago in the bible apply to me today? if Jesus or God told me it is ok, don't feel guilty or estranged from me and it is ok, i forgive you then i wouldn't be writing this passage tonight. those people were especially touched and they KNEW it was a message. i dont' want wait till i am 80 years old on my death bed to realized that i punished my self for 50 years for something like this. is it misplaced guilt? or what. i don't know how to feel about this.
