Conscience: a short manual

January 21, 2014 10:18 am

“The LORD looks at the heart” (1 Sam 16:7).

Wonderful message. But… on the other hand – huge responsibility. What is in my heart? Is it a nice place to look?

How often is my heart tidied up? When was my last confession? Do I remember to examine my conscience regularly? MY conscience, not my spouse’s.

I know. So many questions… Difficult. But HE “looks at the heart”. So it is important what He will see there.

My solution?

Simple. Minimum once a month – confession, the same priest if possible. Keep your heart away from anything which is not pleasurable for Him and offer you heart to Our Lady. She will take care of your heart. And when God looks again at your heart, He will see also Her.

“May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our heart, that we may know what is hope that belongs to our call” (Alleluia versus)
