Getting rid of the knots in my life

This weekend at Cursillo father Marc had a very special way to introduce reconciliation to us. We walked into the church and we were each handed a string, and then proceeded to the pews. Father then began to prepare us all for reconciliation. During the examination of conscience he kept asking us questions, challenging us, moment by moment I found myself tying up knots knots that exposed deficiencies, hurts, and moments of forgetting who I was. I honestly don't remember when the last time I confessed the sin of omission, I truly believe the blessed virgin Mary inspired me to put together one of the best confessions I have ever done in my life. The next moment occurred during confession where I could feel myself gently untying each knot. One at a time. After confession we were asked to place the small string at the foot of the statue of Mary. It was an extremely powerful moment. I had never experienced this before in my life and I am so thankful for this wonderful sacrament.
