“You are called not only to be recipients of mercy but instruments of the Lord's mercy,” said Bishop Burbidge. “Constantly remind God's people that there is no sin or failure greater than his love and mercy for all those who approach him with a contrite heart and a sincere desire to become a new creation.” - From the Arlington Catholic Herald story
