The Sacrament of Confession is a beautiful Sacrament and offers us the opportunity to put right the things we know are wrong in our lives. There is nothing more debilitating then being weighed done by guilt and shame, we see it in the story Jesus told of the prodigal son in the holy Gospel (Luke 15:11-32). We also see in that same story the great love of the Father as he welcomes his son home. The Sacrament of Confession or reconciliation assures us of that same welcome and forgiveness from God our Father. The priest by the authority granted to him through Ordination, is there to assist us in Confession, offering helpful advice and spiritual direction but above all to announce God’s forgiveness and blessing. Those who make Confession part of their way of life often speak about the joy and freedom it brings. If you would like to know more or would like to make your confession, please speak to the clergy who will happily help you.
