Starting 2020 on a sound footing


In his 53rd World Day of Peace message, of 1 January 2020, Pope Francis wrote: “The sacrament of Reconciliation … renews individuals and communities, bids us keep our gaze fixed on Jesus, who reconciled all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross (Col 1:20). It requires us to set aside every act of violence in thought, word and deed, whether against our neighbours or against God’s creation” (no.5).

Why don’t I start 2020 on a sound footing with a sincere sacramental confession?
