    What you said about making a confession really resonated with me. We desire, because of our pride, to make excuses why we may have been induced to sin which in our eyes makes it seem less sinful. I think this is a constant battle with almost everyone who examines their conscience before confession…except maybe a Saint!
    Thank you Dan and Melissa…a very helpful podcast!
