Over the last three mornings I have had the great delight and privilege of confessing over 15o children at our parish primary school, and also some staff.
I was struck, as always, by their openness and honesty and their detail in confessing their sins. Children have none of the hang-ups that hinder some adults when it comes to Confession.
It is a marvellous example to the children when they also see members of staff taking the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament.
I couldn't have expressed it any better myself when one of the children said to me, " I can't explain it; it really is better than a good example to me."
