Cas from LEAD: Confession Changed My Life

Just before this afternoon’s dinner break, Cas shared about the ways that Confession has enabled him to more freely encounter Jesus in the Eucharist.


“Something spoke in my heart, and I went to confession to completely open myself up to the priest.  What I saw wasn’t the priest judging me, but was the Holy Spirit freeing me through the Eucharist.”

“The freedom from sin changed how I was able to receive the Eucharist.”

“There are still times that I walk out of Confession and I don’t feel different, but I still know that God is working in my life.”
