Quote

The sacrament of reconciliation provides another new beginning, an opportunity to “make a firm purpose of amendment” knowing we are forgiven and loved by a merciful God who strengthens our resolve to make the life changes we so hope for ourselves. It also opens our hearts and creates empathy for others; we all share a brokenness that manifests in different ways in all of us.

“Sister St. Francis Xavier is necessary for my existence. She is my oldest daughter, the friend of my soul, which she reads as I do hers. I have need of her advice, of her example. I will even say of her little scoldings.”
