The Light is On For You

March 8 from 6-8 p.m.

Stop by any diocesan parish on March 8 from 6-8 p.m. to experience the healing grace of God’s mercy through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

If you have been away from the Sacrament of Reconciliation, you are not alone. God deeply desires for you to immerse yourself in His mercy, which knows no bounds.

For many of us, the Sacrament of Reconciliation can be scary or perhaps even embarrassing. We may be too nervous or maybe even consider ourselves unforgivable. Yet, Jesus himself tells us in his words to St. Faustina Kowalska that:

“When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to My generosity” (Divine Mercy in My Soul, 1602).
