Rejoice in God's Mercy

Previous Next

This initiative consists of all parishes in the Diocese offering the sacrament of Reconciliation on all the Wednesdays of Advent and Lent, from 7:30-8:30 p.m., in addition to other scheduled times for

Reconciliation at your parish.

Even with the Extraodrinary Year of Mercy behind us, doors across our Diocese remain open for you to experience the peace, love, and joy brought by participating in the sacrament of Reconciliation. In addition to the regular parish schedule, the sacrament of Reconciliation will be available at parishes throughout the Diocese of Calgary all the Wednesdays of Advent, from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

Isaiah prophesies that Jesus will bring reconciliation between even natural enemies: the wolf with the lamb, the cow with the bear, even the small child with the venomous snake. Who are your enemies? Do not lose hope for reconciliation. Through Jesus we too can experience reconciliation in our lives and in our world. John the Baptist calls all people to repentance so that we can live in harmony with one another and welcome one another in the same way Christ has welcomed us. We can hope that through steadfastness and endurance we too can prepare the way for Lord’s healing of division. Action: Look in your community and among your neighbours, family, and friends. Where there is division, take the first step towards reconciliation.
