That the sacrament of reconciliation washes away our sins and reconciles us with God? I personally think that this is one of the most beautiful sacraments, for just like erasing a chalk board, once we have confessed our sins and have completed our penance, in the eyes of God, these sins no longer exist, and our souls are wiped clean. What a wonderful feeling! The result? We return to a state of grace, and once again share in the supernatural life of God. I have had the privilege to work with our Grade 2 classes in preparing for this beautiful sacrament, and it has been a strong reminder for me of the power of this sacrament. One student after receiving their first reconciliation proclaimed “I am sin free!” Wow! In the coming weeks our parish will have multiple opportunities to celebrate this sacrament in preparing ourselves for the coming of our Lord this Christmas. Won’t you join me?
