This priest definitely is on the right track as far as making reconciliation something "real." What a joy is his explanation of reconciliation as a positive experience -- which is something that I have only started to realize in the last several months. After 50 years of being scared to death of reconciliation, I am finally beginning to understand the grace and the merit of the sacrament. Father should be well commended for what he is trying to teach -- a lesson we all can benefit from!
