Pope Francis hears a young man's confession
Pope Francis has invited parishes around the world to dedicate a full 24 hours to the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Lent. The initiative, which started in 2014 and takes place on the fourth Sunday of Lent, has already been enthusiastically received by dioceses and parishes around the world. It is hoped that it will encourage people to come to Confession and to meet the Lord. It is also hoped that parishes will ensure the initiative coincides with Eucharistic Adoration.
If your parish doesn’t yet have any plans to take part then approach your parish priest and encourage him to do so.
