I have a confession to make... I have been guilty of receiving the Eucharist unworthily. I was a much younger woman, but I was not living my life in a state of grace.
I could tell you that my confessor knew of my error (failed to correct me) and it would be true, however, I should have taken it upon myself to learn the Church's teachings in this area of my life. To this day I regret my lack of knowledge and my mistake.
Why am I sharing this? God, in His mercy, eventually opened my eyes and lifted my spiritual blindness! I should have invited His condemnation on myself, and yet He showed me Mercy.
So often we judge another's errors rather than realize that God's mercy can reach beyond our mistakes. We place limitations on what God will forgive or how He will instruct, while He is watching our struggles and is reading our hearts beyond our sinfulness. He, unlike us, is all good and knows everything! He has used my own errors to help me guide others so as to not repeat my mistakes. He brought beauty and light into the darkness that lived in me. Nothing is beyond Him!! Don't forget that... Nothing! His mercy is beyond our understanding and comprehension. He redeems! God bless.
