    I have two questions for Bishop Strickland. I assume you will not use my last name in either one.

    What would he recommend for someone who has great difficulty finding sins to confess. Not that I am a saint. I know better. I went through a period where I had good confessions, but as I conquered those sins, (they still pop through here and there, and I know I must continue to fight them) I was unable to find other sin in my life. I think that the majority of my sins must be sins of omission. Those are harder to find. I have been through several exams of conscience, and guess what? I am a saint. No, I know better than that. I find my self looking for sin where sin may not be. What kind of advice does His Excellency have for me? I am close to 70, married, and a lifelong Catholic.

    Next question concerns advice to give my son about spending nights (off and on) with his girlfriend. She moved back with her parents after being out of the house for three years. There were problems and my son let her stay there while he stayed with us. Then occasionally, he would spend the night there. I absolutely do not believe they are doing anything (doesn’t every parent say that?), but I still know it’s wrong. The best my wife and I have come up with is the temptation that exists and the scandal it presents to others. Both he and his girlfriend are Catholic, go to Mass together, and he goes to Confession, and will say the Rosary with us. They seem to have no problem with sharing a hotel room together (saves money). My wife and I have talked to him about this to no avail. One priest said to say nothing, but offer a Novena to the Sacred Heart. We did that as well as one to Our Lady Undoer of Knots. I have seen nothing change and I can’t stand being quiet. What would Bishop say to us and to them?

    Thank you for your show. I pray fo you daily.

      Two excellent questions, David! Since we only do one question a week now, it may be a couple of months before you get to hear it. As to your first question, may I suggest the Handbook of Prayers for the best examination of conscience I’ve ever seen. And thanks for the prayers!
