Day 200: The Confession of Sins (1455-1460)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we thank you. We thank you so much for this day. We thank you for leading us and walking us through these teachings of your Holy Catholic Church that you established in Jesus Christ and have continued to guide by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Please, Lord, help us today to, once again, approach your teaching, the teaching of your Church, not as simply more data gathering, not just simply as another item of interest, something to learn, but something to penetrate our hearts and minds and transform the way we live. Lord God, let this be transformation. Let this be an opportunity for conversion. In this day particularly, I ask you to please move all the hearts of those who have been away from Confession for a long time. Help all of us to bring our sins before you, to trust you, to trust your mercy, to trust your love, and to trust the grace of your sacrament. We make this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen”
