I don't care what anyone says - Fr. Z is an excellent Catholic priest/confessor who cares about the salvation of souls ...
"God loves you and has never stopped loving you no matter how far you feel you’ve run from His love." - Fr. ZPlease read his post advising a woman on her way to reconciliation with the Church:
One of Satan’s biggest tricks – lies – is to convince us, before we sin, that the sin we are tempted with at that moment is minor (“It’s no big deal, just go ahead and do it, it’s really not all that bad). Then, once we have committed sin, the Enemy changes his tune and tries to convince us that our sins are so horrible that God couldn’t possibly love us, that we should just stay away from the Church, stay away from Mass, stay away from prayer and sacramentals because we are so filthy and disgusting and sinful. Don’t let the Enemy trick you. Yes, your sins may be serious, but God’s grace and mercy are vastly bigger. If you haven’t already, get a small bottle for some holy water from the Church, get a blessed Rosary and pray it. Keep it in your pocket or your purse. Get a blessed Crucifix and keep it in your home. These steps will help you move more and more close to God. - Fr. Z
Pope Francis couldn't say it better.
