My kids have coined a phrase of hope when talking about friends or acquaintances who have received their sacraments, then have fallen away from the faith or started practicing another at a non-Catholic Church. My kids say these folks are, "Just a Confession away."
It's a good reminder that grace and a return to the Catholic Church is not very far away from any of us at any given time.
This Tuesday, my home Diocese of Rochester, NY will offer a chance to 'come home.' A Day of Penance will provide Confession opportunities at every parish from 12:30-7:30pm.http://www.catholiccourier.com/in-depth/previous-topics/year-of-faith/diocese-plans-day-of-penance/
Please prayerfully consider attending the beautiful Sacrament of Mercy and Grace right in time for Holy Week! I will be praying for all of you. God bless!
