THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU
A Column by the Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde featured in the Arlington Catholic Herald
This week, I would like to continue my discussion of our preparations for Lent, and focus in particular on the Sacrament of Penance. As humans created in God's image, we are each called to live in authentic, loving relationships with God and with each other. In the Sacrament of Penance, we truthfully admit the ways we have damaged those relationships, and seek forgiveness and healing for the harm we have caused. When we confess our sins concretely, Jesus Christ is present in this sacrament to show mercy, to forgive, and to provide the graces necessary for future avoidance of sin.
HEARTS ON FIREBishop Loverde's new pastoral letter, "Go Forth with Hearts on Fire," invites all to share the faith with joy for the New Evangelization. Take some time today to watch an introduction by the Bishop, inviting us all to learn to fulfill the Lord's mandate following the Year of Faith.
