“Everyone says to himself: ‘When was the last time I went to confession?’ And if it has been a long time, don’t lose another day! Go, the priest will be good. And Jesus, (will be) there, and Jesus is better than the priests – Jesus receives you. He will receive you with so much love! Be courageous, and go to confession,” – Pope Francis, February 19, 2014
These words from Pope Francis are a great reminder for us of what confession is all about – going to Jesus to receive His love. But, we have to be courageous!
