A Little More On The Sacrament Of Reconciliation

Posted: December 19, 2015 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

The purpose and power of this most precious Sacrament in which Jesus Himself instituted is often overlooked or underplayed when in actual fact it should be treasured.

In His great love and mercy He wants us to know we are forgiven. In the words uttered by the priest in absolution, it is He who speaks to us deep into our very souls; Your sins are forgiven you, my son, my daughter.

Through this wonderful sacrament He not only liberates us from our sins. He confers upon us the grace to resist the temptations to sin again. He blots out our offences and heals us of the effects of sin. So that we can live our transformed lives to the full.

Praise and Glory be to our Lord Jesus Christ. Now and forever. Amen
