Profits from Holy Confession


In her Diary St. Faustina speaks of two great benefits that are obtained from a Holy Confession. She says: “Concerning Holy Confession. We should derive two kinds of profit from Holy Confession: 1. We come to confession to be healed; 2. We come to be educated-like a small child, our soul has constant need of education” (Diary, 376).

Am I helping my soul to be healed from sin and constantly educated by confession or am I damaging it by not going to confession, at least, once a month?
