There is nothing like coming home to a clean house. Many of us have a regular cleaning schedule we adhere to in order to keep our homes neat and clean. After a good cleaning, we welcome guests to come into our homes, even the unexpected drop ins. However, when our home is a mess, we can only hope there are no unexpected visitors!
Just like our homes, our souls also need regular cleaning from the sins we commit every day. The Catholic Church has a sacrament for the cleaning of our souls, the Sacrament of Reconciliation. If we adhere to a regular cleaning schedule for the soul, we become a clean vessel to receive the Lord in the Eucharist! We can welcome Him at any time whether it’s a planned Sunday Mass or a daily drop in.
We are Catholic. Consider adopting a regular schedule to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout the year. Allow our Eucharistic Lord to always enter the clean vessel you make for Him through this amazing Sacrament of healing. Become a pure vessel to receive your special guest at each and every Eucharist.
Ponder: Why is the Sacrament of Reconciliation called a Sacrament of Healing?
Reflect: Sacred Scripture: John 20:21-23
Pray: Heavenly Father, help me to go with confidence to the priest to hear my confession. Let me hold nothing back. For it is You who is actually waiting to forgive me.
