The Advent season is an excellent time to seek forgiveness for our sins through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Christmas is when we celebrate God’s love for us, as demonstrated by the birth of Jesus. As we reflect on God’s great love, we should know that He is willing to forgive us for the times we have damaged our relationship with Him and with others, if we ask.
If you go to the Archdiocese of Toronto’s Advent Day of Confessions page, you will find parishes near you that are offering special times for the Sacrament of Penance between now and Sunday, December 19, 2020. There are also helpful resources on how to make a good confession and how to just make a confession at all.
Regardless of how long it has been since your last confession, please feel welcomed to return to this beautiful healing sacrament.
