I went to the Doctors office today, to get my check up and refills on all the drugs he gives me. All the different things wrong with and each one a little pill can fix. Kind of a cool idea. I don’t feel good, take a pill, I’m to fat, take a pill, a little down, take a pill.
We have pills for everything, and I do mean everything!Our modern life has given us many great things…. But somethings still can not be fixed with a pill.
The Church has given in spiritual “pills”, things to help us fix what is broken in us. The sacrament of confession being one of them. It’s not a quick fix, but it is a fix, a rebuilding of the bond between you and God, and God provided it for us.
Wouldn’t it be nice if after confession you got a prescription slip, like you do at the doctors.
Say 1 Hale Mary before each meal,
and 2 Our Fathers before bed time…
Well in away, we do have that, it’s The Bible.
God provided us with the grates physician ever, Jesus, and Jesus prescribes the greatest medicine of all, himself, in the Eucharist.
So make sure you get your weekly check-up and have your prescription filled every Sunday, because God has provided for us the Greatest of all medicines, Jesus.
