Tonight is the night in which we invite our parishioners to be reconciled with their God. So many have spent years since last going to confession, but as I tell them: it doesn’t matter how long it has been, what matters is that you are there. As we strive for holiness during this Holy Week, have we made amends with God? Are we ready to embrace the coming Easter festivities with our hearts totally clean of all iniquity? What is holding us back from approaching the confessional? Embrace this opportunity to receive God’s forgiveness from the hands of a priest. Feel his mercy. Rejoice in it, for he has destroyed the bondage of sin and allowed us to live in the freedom of God’s children.
