 Reconciliation

Of the Sacraments of Healing (Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick), Reconciliation has been the unfortunate source of much grief and anxiety. Even those most faith filled of people often meet this wonderful healing encounter with Christ with fear and trepidation. 

Of the Sacraments of Healing (Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick), Reconciliation has been the unfortunate source of much grief and anxiety. Even those most faith filled of people often meet this wonderful healing encounter with Christ with fear and trepidation. 

It is this restoration of ourselves to God's grace that we celebrate within the Sacrament of Penance where we are invited to rejoice with the Father that "...this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and now he is found!" (Luke 15:24). 
 

"People are beginning to neglect the practice of confession just when, for the first time, we are learning from the experience of the therapeutic community that, for some things, there is no help, and there can be no help, outside of a searingly honest and detailed telling of our sins, addictions, fantasies, and foibles to another human being." - "Our Need for Confession" Fr. Ron Rolheiser OMI
