Day 202: How Confession Heals (1468-1473)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we thank you for this day. We thank you for the great sacrament of Reconciliation. We thank you for the mercy that comes to us through the ministry of your Church, through the ministry of your priests. We ask that you please draw us closer to your heart. Please reconcile us to yourself. Help us, especially those of us who have hardened hearts to you, to your mercy, to your grace, to your love, help us to have softened hearts that are open to your grace, hearts that are willing to race to you. Lord God, draw all of us to take the next opportunity to say ‘yes’ to you in Confession. Help us to be purified from all of our attachments to sin. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
