[quote:22ja8ion]Pray to find a good spiritual director and confessor. They still exist. What diocese do you live in?[/quote:22ja8ion]

[color=darkblue:22ja8ion]I also asked him a question about Divine Mercy Sunday on having to pray at 3:00 that day, and he looked at me and shook his head as if it so that was not necessary. Almost like he never heard of it. But when I was looking into the Divine Mercy Novena before I talked to him, the website EWTN says this about it … http://www.ewtn.com/devotionals/mercy/hour.htm
I do not understand why he would not know about this. Not only that, but before I found out that I had to start saying the Divine Mercy Novena on Good Friday, I told him I would start it Saturday and he did not correct me. Also, I know I mentioned it before but it still bugs me, I just don’t understand why one would shy me away from weekly confession. I did talk to my wife about the venial sin comment the priest said. I clarified it with her and she said that the priest would just rather us confess the mortal sins first, and THEN the venial sins. My opinion on that is, let the confessor do their job, and let the priest do theirs. Why should I have to do it in a certain order? [/color:22ja8ion]
