This Sunday is also referred to as “Divine Mercy Sunday.” On this day, the Scripture readings remind us that we have a loving and forgiving God. He already knows our sins, so there is no point trying to hide anything from him. The Sacrament of Penance is our opportunity to be open and honest with God about what we have done, and receive his forgiveness. The blank slate that we get from God in the Sacrament of Penance can work wonders in our lives. If you feel like you’ve been messing up in life a lot lately, you might start thinking, “Well, I’m already a sinner, so what’s one more sin? When you have a clean heart from the Sacrament of Penance, though, you feel empowered to avoid sin so that you can keep that good, clean feeling. When was the last time you received the Sacrament of Penance? If it has been a while, this week might be a good time to receive the sacrament again.
