If you have ever wondered how to make a good confession, Fr. Mike Schmitz has some solid advice for you. He points out that preparing for a good confession starts when we recognize that being a "good person” in our own eyes is not enough—we are called to holiness, which is something much greater. In this video, Fr. Mike offers four powerful ways we can examine our consciences so that our experience of reconciliation moves us towards that holiness to which we are called.

Visit http://catholicbrothersforchrist.com TODAY! Catholic Brothers For Christ 2015 North Texas Catholic Men's Conference at the Hurst Conference Center was amazing. Many men experienced a spiritual transformation and revival of their faith and hope. We were edified, encouraged and inspired by our great speakers: Bishop Michael Olson, Father Larry Richards and Tom Peterson. The fellowship was awesome. We all now have a new Band Of Brothers who will help us walk the difficult path of life with a greater experience of faith, hope and love. Father Larry Richards speech was titled "Spiritual exercises to prepare us for battle!" Growing in holiness is the key to being an effective spiritual warrior. He did not disappoint. We were on fire after his presentation and examination of conscience before the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Father Richards truly is a gifted and captivating speaker, preacher and retreat master. He asked us and answered some of life’s most profound questions. Tom Peterson's speech was titled "Our World Needs Catholic Heroes!" We discovered we too can be Catholic Heroes to ourselves, families, friends and communities. Mr. Peterson has over 25 years of experience as an award-winning and record-setting national corporate advertising executive and entrepreneur. His prior marketing, advertising, and management experience includes: American Hospital Supply Corporation; Thomas Publishing Co., IDX Systems Corporation, Phoenix Medical Management, Peterson Sparks, Inc., and Peterson Advertising Corporation. Bishop Michael Olson encouraged us all to walk with our Savior on a daily basis. Love is the cure the world is seeking. Jesus died on the cross as the supreme example of sacrificial love. He wants us to take up our cross and follow Him to eternal life in heaven. In 1985, his family moved to Fort Worth as part of the corporate relocation of GTE/DC. In 1988, Bishop Olson officially transferred as a seminarian to the Diocese of Fort Worth. He was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Fort Worth on June 3, 1994, and began his priestly ministry as the parochial vicar of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Bedford, Texas, from July 1994 through June, 1997. On January 29, 2014 Bishop Olson was ordained bishop and installed as the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Fort Worth at the Fort Worth Convention Center. Approximately 8,500 Catholics from across North Texas and beyond were in attendance. Our mission is: "To motivate all Catholic men to commit to building the body of Christ, by uniting as brothers, witnessing the Gospel in all areas of our lives, and facilitating faith building programs in our community." We hope and pray you will become a part of our team by helping us spread the word about the conference in your parish and among your family and friends. We realize it is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that we are able to do any of this. We hope and pray the Holy Spirit will also inspire you to become an integral part of the North Texas Catholic Brothers for Christ. By uniting as Band Of Brothers, we can accomplish amazing feats, as we work together to build the Body of Christ. We want to encourage you to grow and experience the joy of living fully to become all you were meant to be by the Creator. "I have come so you may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10

During our Parish Mission this past Lent, this presentation was made by to prepare us for receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We are pleased to present this portion of the evenings prayer service for your reflection. The video last approx. 33 minutes and includes the prayers and instructions on receiving the Sacrament at the end. Most of us do not avail ourselves to this Sacrament as often as we could or even should. And yet it remains one of the great opportunities God presents to be healed of those things holding us back from realizing the fullness of God's grace. There is no "one way" to prepare for the Sacrament. There are, in fact, many forms of an examination of conscience. We offer this as just one more example of how to place yourself in God's presence. What is important is that you come. God is always there. Come.

The Confession App prepares you in a gentle and comforting way for the Catholic sacrament of Confession (Reconciliation). Place a check mark next to items you'd like to confess and they appear in the Confession Guide section for use during Confession. You can feel secure because no data is stored to the phone hard drive or to the internet. After Confession, you press "Erase My Sins" and your check marked sins are removed from the temporary cache in the phone or tablet. The sin check boxes are very large and easy to press. The overall tone is very welcoming and inviting. More sensitive topics are addressed with big words to help protect younger readers. Because no data is ever saved to the phone, no username or password is required. The app also features an "Introduction" section with information on the history of the sacrament and general information about the grace and forgiveness offered by Christ. Catechism and scripture references are included in this section. In "About This App" drop down, you can contact us with ideas. This App is designed for the Catholic sacrament of Confession (also called Reconciliation or Penance) as celebrated in most of the western world. However, it may be used as a general examination of conscience by anyone or any group. This app is approachable, beautiful, complete, and prayerfully reflective. Enjoy! Big large check boxes make checking off sins very easy. In fact, you can click the text as well as the check box. The grey box turns into a shiny blue check mark. At the end of the examination questions, a text box allows you to type in any additional offenses that might be on your mind. Pushing the "Go to the Confession Guide" button transfers your check boxes and written sins to the Guide to Confession page where you are guided step by step through the sacrament of confession. The app was especially designed to be easy to use in the confessional. The font is large and prayers you need to say are in big bold letters. Your sins from the examination page also appear in the first person so you can simply read them. At the very end, you are awarded the enjoyment of pushing the "Erase My Sins" button and are notified that "Your sins have been erased". Of course, technologically we are referring to the cache on the phone. But if you did receive the sacrament, you can rejoice in your sins sacramental removal as well. The app can also easily be used for a nightly examination of conscience apart from the sacrament of confession. It is a great app to recommend to friends, to use on retreats, and to recommend to bible study and faith sharing groups. The app itself can be the topic of a discussion group.

EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE (based on the 10 Commandments) When did I make my last confession? Did I deliberately fail to mention my mortal sins at the time? Did I fulfill the penance? Since my last confession, have I received Holy Communion unworthily, i.e. aware that I have committed a mortal sin? How do I approach the sacrament of penance? What, if anything, has kept me away from the confessional? Am I resolved, with the help of God's grace, to try to lead a better Christian life, in a fuller spirit of friendship with Our Lord, through faith hope and charity? 1. "I am the Lord your God; you shall not have strange gods before me." Do I love God above all else? Have I been angry with God or lost my faith in him? Am I happy and secure in my identity as a Catholic, or do I try to mask that identity? Do I embrace all that the Church proposes for my belief in matters of both faith and morals? Do I strive to deepen my faith or have I jeopardized that faith by carelessly exposing myself to anti-Catholic teaching or thinking? By the way I live, am I helping to proclaim the Gospel? Do I pray regularly with sincerity, devotion, and gratitude? In times of temptation do I seek Our Lord’s help? Have I yielded to despair? Alternatively, have I presumed God's mercy in order that I may continue some particular sin? 2. "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain." Do I use the Lord’s name with reverence or have I shown lack of respect for it in conversation or exclamations? Have I kept any promises made under oath? Have I given scandal (lead someone) into sin? Do I show respect for the Blessed Mother and the Saints? 3. "Keep holy the Sabbath day." Have I missed Mass on Sunday or holy days of obligation? Do I try to avoid unnecessary work on those days, in keeping with joy proper to the Lord's Day? Do I assist at Mass with devotion? Am I generous in the weekly collection? Do I observed the one hour fast before receiving Holy Communion? Do I perform some act of penance on Fridays? 4. "Honor your father and your mother." FOR PARENTS: Have I taken the necessary steps to ensure that my children receive a Christian education, as well as the sacraments appropriate to their age? Do I encourage them to learn and say their prayers? Do I set a good example for them? Do I show interest in the TV programs and movies they watch, the books and magazines they read, in the friends they make? Do I teach them to respect lawful authority and to responsibly use their freedom? Do I fostered their love and trust? Do I abuse them in any sense or cause them to lose heart? Do I fail to correct them when necessary? FOR CHILDREN: Have I been disobedient to my parents? Do I show them respect and affection? Do I neglect either their material or spiritual needs? Do I fulfill my responsibilities at home? Have I fought with my brothers or sisters? Have I neglected my studies or cheated on exams or homework? Do I always follow school rules? 5. “You shall not kill.” Have I physically injured anyone? Have I maintained hatred or anger against someone? Have I lost my temper or offended another with my words? Did I try to make amends, or on the other hand, have I refused an offer of reconciliation? Am I ever envious or jealous? Do I rejoice at another's misfortune? By word or example, was I an occasion of sin for another person? Have I driven recklessly or under the influence of alcohol? Have I neglected my health? Do I abuse drugs, alcohol, or food? Have I procured an abortion or counseled another to do so? 6. “You shall not commit adultery.” 9. “You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.” Have I committed adultery or fornication vacation? Have I engaged in any type of impure act either alone [masturbation] or with someone else? Do I avoid occasions of sin against purity by exercising care in the company I keep, the books and magazines I read, the television programs and movies I watch? Do I deliberately engage in lustful thoughts? Do I use impure language? Do I practice the virtue of modesty in my attire? FOR MARRIED PEOPLE: Am I in a valid marriage? Have I been faithful to my spouse in desire, as well as in deed? Have I or my spouse made use of any method of artificial contraception, especially one that can function as an abortifacient (e.g. The pill or “the shot”)? Did I encourage my spouse to be sterilized or did I undergo such a procedure? Have I informed myself of the church's teaching on responsible parenthood? Am I selfish with regard to not having children? Have I engaged in unchaste sexual acts with my spouse, i.e. completed sexual acts not open to the transmission of life? 7. "You shall not steal." 10. "You shall not covet your neighbor's goods."

Listen to and read the Act of Contrition, a Catholic prayer that may be used in public worship or privately to confess sin or examine one's conscience: O my God! I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. This text comes from Baltimore Catechism No. 1 of 1885.

I LOVE the sacrament of penance! In this video, I explain the 3 main reasons why. Jesus instituted the sacrament of penance: Leviticus 19 : 20-22 http://www.usccb.org/bible/leviticus/19 James 5 : 14-17 http://www.usccb.org/bible/james/5 Matthew 16 : 19 http://www.usccb.org/bible/matthew/16 John 20 : 21-23 http://www.usccb.org/bible/john/20 He [Jesus] breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” Catholic 4 Rednecks elaborates: https://youtu.be/Kxg7nNpq9qQ We spiritually benefit from confession. Scroll to paragraph 1496 in the catechism: http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p2s2c2a4.htm Act of Contrition: God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of your grace to confess my sins, do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
