On December 22, 2007, Brendan followed in Bernadette's footsteps and received his First Confession during Advent. We had agreed that I would go to confession first, then he would go, and then the rest of the family. I went into the confessional, knelt down, confessed my sins, and then I told our pastor that Brendan would be coming in after me.
I left the confessional, intending to let my son know that it was his turn, but he was no where to be seen. I soon learned that he had gone into the confessional on the other side, right after I had entered the confessional. He was very happy to have his sins forgiven and is looking forward to going again.
