Hopefully, you have made the decision to follow Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. We follow him through the guidance of the Catholic Church, the Church founded by Jesus Himself. Our Church has received the sacraments from Christ to help us grow in our faith and in our relationship with God. The sacraments are great gifts instituted by Christ to provide us with the grace we need for our earthly journey and to ensure entrance into our eternal destination with God. Put these gifts to use in your life.

We are Catholic. Receive Jesus, Sacramentally in the Eucharist. Receive Jesus in the Eucharist with a pure heart through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. These two profound sacraments go together. If we receive Jesus with a pure heart, He can work more deeply within us and through us in a remarkable way.

Reconciliation and Eucharist…two amazing sacraments. Receive them often. They define us as Catholics, because…We are Catholic.

Ponder: What are some barriers to the Sacrament of Reconciliation? How can we overcome these barriers?

Reflect: Sacred Scripture,  John 20: 19-23

Pray: Lord, give me the courage to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation often so that I may receive your body, blood, soul and divinity with a pure heart.
