Confession: Sacrament of Reconciliation With God and Human
“My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.” (Psalms 51:17)
- Confession is appealing to the love and mercy of God
- Confession calls for humility and a joyful resolve to obey
Christ’s salvific act on the cross was the ultimate act of love. It is through this sacrifice that we are reconciled with God. Through our confessions and Christ’s sacrifice, we are able to be reconciled with God and live in his presence.
O Lord, may we learn that your love is greater than any temptation we face, so that we can strive to be better for you and become the light of the world.
Thought for the Day
He accepts us even with our inherent brokenness and loves us for ourselves.
