Mercy through Repentance

October 4, 2016

“Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
Acts 3:19

Jubilee Year of Mercy
The Church teaches us that a contrite heart experiences “sorrow of the soul and detestation of the sin committed, together with the resolution not to sin again”. And when this contrition arises from a love by which God is loved above all else, it’s called “perfect” contrition.

May our hearts be set aflame with a love of God above all else. In this extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, let us pray for the grace to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with perfect contrition. May your next Confession, be your very best Confession.

Prayer for Divine Mercy
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelope the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
