The grandeur of God's mercy...

 24 Hours for the Lord
March 9-10, 2018

"The initiative of "24 Hours for the Lord," to be celebrated on the Friday and Saturday
preceding the Fourth Week of Lent, should be implemented in every diocese.  
So many people, including young people, are returning to the Sacrament of Reconciliation; 
through this experience they are rediscovering a path back to the Lord
living a moment of intense prayer and finding meaning in their lives.  
Let us place the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the centre once more in such a way 
that it will enable people to touch the grandeur of God's mercy with their own hands.  
For every penitent, it will be a source of true interior peace." - Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus, 17

Check your parish and/or diocesan Web site for details regarding your area.

"If men only knew what eternity is, how they would make 
all possible efforts to amend their lives." - Fatima seer, St Jacinta

"In the Mass the blood of Christ
flows anew for sinners."
St Augustine

Mass and Confession: a perfect pairing!

He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses
and forsakes them will have mercy. - Proverbs 28:13

"In failing to confess, Lord, I would only hide You from myself, 
not myself from You." St Augustine

For the sake of His sorrowful passion, 
have mercy on us and on the whole world!
