Reconciliation + Sacrament of Penance

May the grace of the Holy Spirit fill your heart with light, that you may confess your sins with loving trust and come to know that God is merciful
(The Rite of Penance #69).
The mercy and love of God is expansive, all inclusive and dynamic.  God has reconciled the world to himself in Christ who made his dwelling among us, bearing our human weakness and sins, calling us out of darkness into light.  Jesus began his work on earth by preaching repentance and saying:  “Turn away from sin and believe the Gospel.” Forgiveness and reconciliation is at the heart of Jesus’ ministry and is central to the mission of the Church.  Sin and death are not the last words.  Forgiveness and life are!

    I was baptized in the Latin rite, can I attend the Byzantine rite every Sunday or do I have to make an appearance at a Latin rite mass? The closest traditional Latin mass is nearly 3 hours away. I do not like Novus ordo because I do not like seeing Jesus handled with such irreverence. It makes me seething angry to watch it.

      How sad. It seems you are in need of some good catechesis regarding the Liturgy of the Catholic Church. Would be happy to visit with you, if you like, Fr.E Hislop
