I love the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t enjoy facing my faults and naming my sins. But, I do love the Sacrament all the same.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a great gift. Through the Sacrament Reconciliation, we acknowledge our sins, express our sorrow, receive the God’s forgiveness, make reparation for our sins and resolve to do better in the future. Who could ask for anything more!
I do my best to receive the Sacrament at least twice a month. I notice when I miss it, when I go too long without it. Even though I find it challenging to honestly acknowledge my sins, I believe in the benefit of that discipline. I value the occasion to express sorrow to my loving God. And most significantly I am excessively joyous to bask in God’s forgiveness and love.
I do love this Sacrament! And I hope you have the same wonderful experience of God’s loving mercy.
