Preparing children (or adults) for the Sacrament of Reconciliation allows us to show them that God is Love and mercy itself, and in that mercy He is always ready to forgive, no matter what the wrong. It assures them that God already knows the secrets of our hearts, but we need to name these wrongs aloud in order to prepare our hearts to renew the experience of God's love and forgiveness. God's will is that all people will be reconciled with one another and with God. What an extraordinary gift we have in the Sacrament of Reconciliation!
Please keep our precious students and their catechists in your prayers as they teach, learn and grow in the Catholic faith.
