The Risen Lord

"In the present era, the risen Lord gives us a place of refuge, a place of light, hope and confidence, a place of rest and security. When drought and death loom over the branches, then in Christ we find future, life and joy. In him we always find forgiveness and the opportunity to begin again, to be transformed as we are drawn into his love".   (Pope Benedict XVI, Homily at Olympic Stadium Berlin, 22 September 2011)

Lord, give us the grace to open our hearts to accept your love and forgiveness through the sacrament of reconcilation, that we may experience new life through your mercy. Amen
