“Mercy; the bridge that connects God and humans, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness" (Pope Francis)
One of the Pope’s prayer intentions is “that all may experience the mercy of God who never tires of forgiving” You are welcome to make this one of your prayer intentions too.
One way to discover God’s mercy is in prayer. Open your heart and mind to God and say, "Lord show me that you are merciful.” or you want to say, "Lord Jesus, have mercy on me.” God wants us to know that he is merciful so I am confident that if you ask God, you will get an answer. You can pray at home in your favorite place or you can also come to Church and pray. We are open all day and in the eve, or you may want to come during the time of adoration: Saturdays from 8-9 am and Mondays from 12-1 pm.
You might also want to make use of the Sacrament of Confession on Saturdays from 8:45 to 9:15 am or on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 7 pm or anytime, just give me a call at 873-7633. (Note: During Advent and Lent confessions will be heard from 6:30-8:30 on Tuesday instead of Wednesday)
