As we celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord this Easter I make a special call for all of us to celebrate the Sacrament of Confession sometime prior to Divine Mercy Sunday on April 11. The human family is very much in need of the abundant mercy that our loving God offers us through His Son. Let us celebrate this mercy by means of the Sacrament of Mercy which Confession is.
