YOUTH MINISTRY PROGRAM
From the Parish Secretary Vol. 17, Issue 5
Do you believe in forgiveness? Consider some of the things you keep hidden in your heart and don’t want anyone to know – things you are ashamed of having done. Do you believe God forgives you? We have been forgiven; but, we are not always willing to accept forgiveness. Find a quiet place and ask the spirit to help you as you look at one of your “hidden sins.” Look it over carefully. Don’t try to “explain” it or justify it. Just look and imagine Jesus is sitting with you and looking at it too. Try looking as Jesus and tell him you are sorry. Sit quietly with him and let him speak to your soul. Can you now accept forgiveness?
DIOCESAN POSTING –there is a posting for a Financial Assistant for the Catholic Schools Office. Please see the posting on the bulletin board.
