Part of the Reading


At Mass today, we heard this as part of the second reading.  I have excerpted only a segment of it.  It touched me as valuable and important:

[We need] to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
[We must be] able to deal patiently with the ignorant and erring,
for
[we are] beset by weakness
and so, for this reason, must make sin offerings for
[ourselves]
 as well as for the people.

I need to be a better person than I am.  I need to be more patient and kind.  I need to work to fix my sins.  I need to realize my own failings and weaknesses.  I need to beg forgiveness for the wrong that I do.  Yet, it is so hard.  Or, at least it *feels* hard.  I suspect it should be easy to do, only if I were a better person.  I try to be a good person, but I fail.  I feel like all I do is fail.  Why am I so wrong and so bad?   I used to think I was doing pretty "ok" at least.  I wish I still felt that, even if it was false.

I often feel the same way. But then, I think...if I'm wishing I were a better person, and if I'm actually aware of (and acknowledging) the fact that I'm not...well then, maybe I'm actually a better person than I realize.
These moments are fleeting, alas...most of the time, I don't like myself much...
You seem like a very good person...most are not as aware of their shortcomings and have no desire to change them...

Do me a favor and just get over being a fucking catholic, if you didn't smoke and wasn't a fucking catholic you might near being fucking perfection.

I've said it many times, my mother loved being a catholic, fuck some guys, go to confession, get a clean slate, fuck some guys, go to confession, etc, etc, etc.

I think she just liked to brag to a priest about the guys she was fucking. :-)

Well that fucking sucks, cuz most of the time I really like myself and what I am, it's everyone else that pisses me off.

What the hell for? Are you butt fucking alter boys?

Sticking your lounge in a pussy once in a while is not a sin.

You don't even know what the fuck sins are, all you know is your fucking brainwashings.

It may be a sin to fuck a married woman, on the other hand it may be fun. Can't knock fun and I'm pretty sure the universe doesn't give a shit one way or the other.
