Reconciliation

Reconciliation

Reconciliation is Saturday at noon in the Church or by appointment.
 
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism! Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession so that we can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.
 
 
What happens in the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation is almost more than one could imagine. If we could meet Jesus today, we would expect to be received with love and compassion, because he is perfect and knows what it is to forgive. Instead, we confess to an ordinary human being who represents Jesus Christ sacramentally. We can expect the priest to receive us with love and care and compassion as well – not because he is sinless, but because he knows what it is to need forgiveness. God transforms even our human frailty into the medium of life-giving grace.
