So thankful for the Penance service we had here at our very own parish -- with guest priests too! God is good! Especially after the church shutdown during the beginning of the pandemic, it is wonderful to have access to our sacraments -- let's not take them for granted, and pray for our good priests. 😀 I was glad to prepare for the beautiful feast of Easter, and look forward to preparing for next Sunday's feast too: Divine Mercy Sunday! I'm delighted by the promise of the extraordinary grace by receiving Holy Communion with my soul cleaned up in a state of Grace, with trust in His merciful Love. "Create in me a clean heart o God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me!" (Psalms). I could even go to Confession 1 more time before next Sunday, just to make sure my soul is squeaky clean. 😀
“In the tribunal of mercy [the Sacrament of Reconciliation]... the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated... To avail oneself of this miracle, it is not necessary to go on a great pilgrimage or to carry out some external ceremony; it suffices to come with faith to the feet of My representative and to reveal to him one’s misery, and the miracle of Divine Mercy will be demonstrated.” (Diary of St. Faustina: Divine Mercy in my Soul, entry 1448).
