Be reconciled!

 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits  - 
 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion. - Psalm 103: 2-4

 The Prodigal Son ~ Liz Lemon Swindle

“The two sacraments of the Eucharist and Penance
are very closely connected. Because the Eucharist makes present
the redeeming sacrifice of the cross, perpetuating it sacramentally,
it naturally gives rise to a continuous need for conversion,
for a personal response to the appeal made by Saint Paul
to the Christians of Corinth  (2 Cor 5:20) :
‘We beseech you on behalf of Christ,
be reconciled to God’.”
Pope Bl John Paul II
