Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: The 4th Sunday of Lent is a good time to ask: Why do we prefer to conceal our sins rather than face them and go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation and speak about them out loud? It’s Jesus who meets us in the confessional, appearing to us in the form of a priest who’s sworn to secrecy. In the Gospel reading (John 3:14-21), Jesus assures us that he did not come to condemn us. It is safe to come into the light where our sins are exposed.
