“An Explanation”

December 26, 2011

On this serene Christmas, one for some unknown reason thought of an explanation to a well deserved question asked by several of one’s friends throughout the course of one’s life thusfar. Earlier one couldn’t give an answer whether it being adequate or being explicit. Needless to say, the question is as follows. Why do Catholics go to a priest to confess their sins instead of telling God what wrong they have done and therefore asking God’s forgiveness? After pondering this from time to time and not losing any sleep over it: one has come up with an obvious answer. The answer is as follows. The priest is a mediator or go-between. If one wants something one would necessarily ask a mother for the mother is naturally going to give what is asked more readily. So Catholics ask the Blessed Virgin Mary for things that are become important in a person’s life. She is again a mediator between the person asking God or for that matter Jesus. Again it is easier to ask the infant Jesus for things too. Hope one isn’t going off the beaten track. So as these are in the spiritual sense. Persons who are of the human sense wants another like themselves and priests being human as all know full well fill the bill in providing a conversations which make the persons feel at ease and therefore provide comfortability. Priests also have the power to give absolution. So therefore a person may feel free of sin or wrongfulness. There have been many Non Catholics who have ask the confessional question to oneself. Now the Catholics are now Christians like the Protestants. There are many types of Protestants. Now there are two types of Catholics, the Roman and the Byzantine which originated in the eastern part of the world. Now there is a byzantine catholic christian church in America. There is a website dedicated to it. Ones practise is to strip away religions and treat persons as persons afterall each person has the same blood running through their veins and have the exact or similiar feelings to oneself.
