The Sacrament of Reconciliation

IMG_20160710_174339RRRO how very blessed, how very blessed the church is

Jesus says whose sins you forgive they are forgiven

and so we have the Sacrament of Reconciliation

And I am grateful to be able to go regularly

and to be able to receive the grace

so freely

so joyfully

so hopefully

so confidently

What would happen if there was a limit to one’s confession?

What would happen indeed?

I shudder to think that it can  be so

No, it cannot and that  is why it is so easy

to take things for granted

to grow careless of the Sacrament

Come next weekend the little ones aged around nine

will have to make their first Holy Reconciliation

May God bless them to receive the grace

of always leaning on the Lord

Counting on his mercy and abundant goodness

being faithful to the end
