Beginning a new life in Jesus

Reconciliation readies us for the 40 days of Lent

by Sister Agnes Fischer

“Repent and believe in the Gospel.” ~ Mark 1:15

God is waiting for you this Lent.

Because of COVID-19 many of us have not had the opportunity for the sacrament of reconciliation for about a year. So let’s review our Catechism:


In the reconciliation room or confessional of any church

In the person of any priest – young or old

In the one tribunal (court) where the sentence is absolution


            To pardon all your sins

            To help you not to do them again

            To return you to peace and tranquility

            To begin a new life without charges pending


            With open arms

            Without rancor

            Receiving you as a child returning to a loving home

“Repent and believe in the Gospel.”

Isn't the Holy Spirit so clever? :)

Yes, S/He Most Assuredly Is! :)

Always Has Been .... Is Now ..... And Forever Will Be! :)

A M E N.

And Sister Agnes, you are one of her most beautiful, most precious, most beloved, most blessed instruments. :)

That just seems to 'run' in -- and through -- the most humblest of creatures ....... :)

Thank You!

We can begin a new life here and now, no charges pending. Sending loving presence.

Very creative and inspiring.
