"Some are inclined to replace exaggerated attitudes of the past with other exaggerations: From seeing sin everywhere they pass to not recognizing it anywhere; from too much emphasis on the fear of eternal punishment they pass to preaching a love of God that excludes any punishment deserved by sin; from severity in trying to correct erroneous consciences they pass to a kind of respect for conscience which excludes the duty of telling the truth." ~ Pope John Paul II


My prayer for you today, dear reader, is that you will take an opportunity during your Lenten pilgrimage to celebrate the Father's love through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. ~Friar Rex
