In this battle against our inclination towards evil, who could be brave and watchful enough to escape every wound of sin?
- CCC No. 979
Reflection: Forgiveness and reconciliation are powerful sources of healing to the human spirit and psyche, but in order to receive their benefits we must admit our sins and explicitly ask for pardon. The stage for this beautiful and necessary human drama is the confessional.
Prayer: Father, draw your wandering children back to you. May we embrace the healing and strength you offer us through the sacrament of Reconciliation.
