Full of power, full of tender mercy...

He will defend the afflicted among the people and save
the children of the needy; he will crush the oppressor.  - Psalm 72:4

“Let us then draw near to the Child God
with great faith…

In the Tabernacle as in the Crib,
it is the same God full of power,
the same Savior full of tender mercy."

Blessed Columba Marmion


This final week of Advent is an ideal time for approaching
our Savior, full of tender mercy, in the sacrament of Reconciliation.
May we prepare for good and grace-filled holy Communions.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. - Hebrews 4:16

"Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in confession."
- St. Isidore of Seville
