curses, memed again! Thanks, Julie!
Heavenly Father:
I acknowledge and bewail my manifold sins and wickedness, which I, from time to time most grievously have committed against your divine
majesty, provoking most justly your wrath and indignation against me. I do earnestly repent, and am heartily sorry for these my misdoings. The remembrance of them is grievous unto me, the burden of them is intolerable. Have mercy on me, most merciful Father. For the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me all that is past, and grant that I may ever hereafter serve and please you in newness of life, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
I confess that I dearly miss the Anglican liturgy of my youth, and still refer to my 40+ year old copy of the Book of Common Prayer. I would join an Anglican usage parish in a heartbeat if one was reasonable close.
I confess that I learn things best when set to music, preferably catchy tunes.
I confess that I have no talent for matching names and faces, and that even after 5 years I still don't know the names of all the nurses in Labor and Delivery of the hospital where I catch babies.
I confess that I have a weakness for vodka cocktails like Cosmos and other 'girlie drinks'.
I confess that I have been known to play the guitar and/or the flute in more than one 'contemporary music' church choir - and at Mass, no less.
I confess to a weakness for selected songs by the (otherwise evil) trio of Haugen, Hass, and Hurd.
I confess to a tendency to automatically sing the alto part of most hymns even if no one else in the pews does so.
I confess to puzzlement at why Catholic hymnals only include the melody line in the book.
I confess that even after 32 some years as a Catholic, I still don't know quite what I am supposed to do or say when I go to confession.
I confess that I get quite angry at my fellow drivers when they don't know how to merge in or out of highway traffic.
I confess to preferring to read SF to my Bible most of the time.
I confess to having an addiction to playing Scrabble on my Palm Pilot during boring meetings.
I confess to taking notes on the homilies during Mass, on my Palm Pilot.
I confess to loving the Nicene Creed and to getting confused when saying the Apostle's Creed.
I confess to getting really angry when Father (or whomever) skips the word "men" in the phrase "for us men and for our salvation" in the Creed.
I confess to having no idea what this meme is really about.
I hereby tag Ukok, Selkie,Papa-Lu, and Sparkie

alicia got me with a somewhat ironic meme in light of the post five down from here. There's no actual description of the meme, so I guess I'll have to figure it out somehow... I confess that I enjoy certain... Read More


Dear Alicia,

Note on palm during the homily--now there's a sign of a former protestant. You were a convert weren't you?

(By the way, I do the same. But for boring meetings, I read the Bible on my Palm. For one thing I don't have Scrabble or very many games at all so I'm mostly bored with the ones I have, and there's lots of people who would be only too willing to reveal any such large indiscretion to those in charge. So it's harder to report text, even if it looks somewhat suspicious. More, it gives me more time with the word--something I'm slowly growing to love.

Great confessions--have to admit to a lot of these myself. Thank you.
