Homily from the Fifth Sunday of Lent.
“And again, someone could say, ‘Honestly? Why [go to Confession]? I’m not telling God anything He doesn’t know.’ You’re right. You won’t be telling God anything He doesn’t know. And you won’t be showing God something that He doesn’t already see. What you’ll be doing is you’ll be giving God something He doesn’t already have. Again, when we go to Confession, we are not telling God something He doesn’t already know and we’re not showing Him something He doesn’t already see. We’re giving Him something He doesn’t already have. What He doesn’t have, is He doesn’t have your broken heart yet. What He doesn’t have is He doesn’t have what’s dead in my life and what’s dead in your life. But in Confession, we actually get to hand that over, what’s broken in our heart, to the God of the broken heart.”
