Closing the Jubilee Year of Mercy

In another article on this web site, you will find a complete listing of times for Prayer Services, Reconciliation, and Adoration times during our Forty Hours Devotion – November 17th through the 19th.  We hope you will join us as we celebrate this final week of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.  Come watch one hour with Our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Come take advantage of the Grace and Mercy that you will find in the blessed act of going to Confession.  Come join in prayer with your community of fellow Christian Catholics.  As the Lord says, “Come Follow Me!”   After all, He is calling your name.

Additional Times For Confessions during 40 Hours Devotion:

Included in our schedule of events for the close of this Jubilee Year of Mercy, you will find additional times for you to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as “Going to Confession”).  Please don’t shy away from Our Lord when He is waiting for you to come back to Him in the Confessional.  If it has been a long time since you have been to Confession, please do not be afraid to just go in and tell Father that “it has been a long time” and that you may need a little help.  Both Jesus Christ and the priest, who is in the Confessional and represents Him, will be more than willing to help you.

Parents, we know that you want your children to grow up and to continue as adults as practicing Catholics.  There is no better way for them to learn what this means than to see their parents practicing their Faith.  One of the most important aspects of our Catholic Faith is the many opportunities we have for the Mercy and Grace that we receive in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

As Deacon John told us recently, “God’s mercy is available for free — right here in the confessional every week and in Catholic Churches around the world — the grace we receive from confession is most real when we receive the Eucharist with a pure heart.”   “I see Mercy …. in Jesus Christ, my Savior and my Lord!”  Wouldn’t it be great to start the New Liturgical Year (which begins with the First Sunday of Advent on November 27th) with a clean heart?

Do I hear an “Amen!”?

Note:  There are guides on “How to go to Confession” and “Examination of Consciences” found near the Confessional in church.
