Reconciliation

(Confession)

We are all called to become the person whom God created us to be.  We are all a work in progress.  To make progress on this journey requires effort rooted in God's redeeming mercy which comes to us through the sacrament of Reconciliation.  In this sacrament we are encouraged and supported to examine our conscience, reflecting on the areas of our lives which need attention.  God forgives us the moment we realize we need forgiveness.  However, the sacrament of Reconciliation is a personal, intimate encounter with Christ whereby we can experience his transforming compassion, patience, understanding, forgiveness, healing and merciful love that leads to conversion and ultimately a deeper life in Christ.

 

God longs to forgive you.  Remember, God knows that you are much more than the worst things you’ve ever done.
