Greetings all,

My W is feeling very depressed at the moment. Partially it's post-partum depression (although she doesn't want to tell the doctor about it). Partially it is because she went to confession at the weekend, and the priest told her (not unkindly, by the sound of it), that it was not because she *can't* forgive me but because she *chooses* not to. He also suggested that she should look closely at the Lord's prayer, and decide if it was even a prayer that it is appropriate for her to say right now. (I must admit, having looked more deeply at it in the past few years that line about "Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us" is a really important one. If I am asking God to forgive me as I forgive others, then I must forgive *everyone* if I am to expect to be forgiven myself.)

Anyway, I'm getting off the point somewhat. If you have the chance, please say a special prayer for her (and all in similar circumstances) today.

God Bless,
Richard

P.S. If you could say a prayer for me too, I'd appreciate it. As part of becoming a Catholic I have my first official confession tomorrow.... In some ways I'm looking forward to it. In others it's a little scary to know that I must humbly confess everything to another person.
