He’s not done with me yet

I went to Confession today. My last one was Fall 2009 so it’s been a while. The priest gave me a really weird penance.

Father: This is going to be an unusual penance. You ready?
Me: Yeah…?
Father: Your penance is to be more compassionate and more patient… with yourself.
Me: …That’s interesting. 

He just chuckled at me. After a few more kind words he said, “Don’t be too hard on yourself. Just always remember that He’s not done with you yet.”

I love going to Confession. It’s like taking a really, really good shower.
