So confessionals are now pretty much gone from the Catholic Church? How does that work, with it being a sacrement?

Come to think of it, I’m not sure if I know any full blown Roman Catholic folk these days. Not sure who I would ask, for verification and point of view.

When I was a little Catholic kid, I actually rather liked going to confession. I still remember how to say the act of contrition, lord’s prayer and hail mary, despite not having been a part of that church for four decades or so.

(Also, I first read the research center’s purview as Apostate, not Apostolate…. a very different thing!)

“Confession, after all, is one of the seven Catholic sacraments. But now only 2 percent of Catholics go regularly to confession, according to the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate, a nonprofit organization affiliated with Georgetown University—and three-quarters of them never go, or go less than once a year.”

Huge bit of hail on the Chesapeake bay just a bit ago! Biggest I have seen in a decade or more. A bit bigger than a quarter here, huge on the bays edge where wind is higher. No visible damage so far, going to check the windshield when things clear up.

Cleaning up our games shelves, and we took a break to play a little blockus. I barely won (by one point, I was blue.) I think we have 3 different blockus games, regular, duo and travel (shown here)

Nice storage design. Probably the first time we have played it in a decade.

In Uzbek they have this concept of the divine dark, the darkness from which all things came. So there’s this idea that shows up in a lot of their literature that when the world was first made it was like a gentle night, peaceful, quiet and pitch-black. The night is when creation started and the night is when you’re closest to glimpsing what it was like at the very start of the world. https://instagr.am/p/CdlZjfWjge3/
