    Dynamic Catholic, Alive! The Elements of Confession

    In Confession, there are four essential elements for the peni- tent: 1) Examination of Conscience (careful reflection on our sins), 2) Contrition (interior repentance), 3) Confession (telling one’s sin to the priest), and 4) Satisfaction (carrying out our penance). There are many great guides to confession available. Don’t worry if you can’t remember all of the responses. Priests are always willing to help you make a good confession. Do you know the difference between perfect and imperfect contri- tion?

    Message of His Holiness Pope Francis for Lent 2015

    (continued from last week)

    If we humbly implore God’s grace and accept our own limita- tions, we will trust in the infinite possibilities which God’s love holds out to us. We will also be able to resist the diabolical temptation of thinking that by our own efforts we can save the world and ourselves. As a way of overcoming indifference and our preten- sions to self-sufficiency, I would invite everyone to live this Lent as an opportunity for engaging in what Benedict XVI called a formation of the heart (cf. Deus Caritas Est, 31). A merciful heart does not mean a weak heart. Anyone who wishes to be merciful must have a strong and steadfast heart, closed to the tempter but open to God. A heart which lets itself be pierced by the Spirit so as to bring love along the roads that lead to our brothers and sisters. And, ultimately, a poor heart, one which realizes its own poverty and gives itself freely for others. During this Lent, then, brothers and sisters, let us all ask the Lord: “Fac cor nostrum secundum cor tuum”. Make our hearts like yours (Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus). In this way we will receive a heart which is firm and merciful, attentive and generous, a heart which is not closed, indifferent or prey to the globalization of indifference. It is my prayerful hope that this Lent will prove spiri- tually fruitful for each believer and every ecclesial community. I ask all of you to pray for me. May the Lord bless you and Our Lady keep you.

    “’For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son…” John 3:16 Of all the wonderful gifts that God has given to us, the gift of His own Son is truly the greatest. How can we ever thank God for a gift like that? God does not ask us to sacrifice our own precious firstborn, but He does ask that we be generous in making some sacrifices for Him.
