The Sacrament of Reconciliation for Lent
Rt Rev Kieran Conry, who is Chair of the Bishops’ Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis, explains what is being offered this Lent, and why it is being offered, in support of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
The sacrament that we call ‘Confession’ is enjoying something of a re-discovery by people.
First of all, the emphasis shouldn’t be on the word ‘Confession’ at all, but on the word ‘Reconciliation’, because it’s a way in which the believer experiences the reconciling love of God.”
