Sacrament of Reconciliation services across the Diocese of Raleigh

While Lent is characterized as a penitential season, it is more properly understood in its most primitive origins as a season of final preparation before Baptism. Such an understanding should, therefore, shape our approach to the sacrament of Penance in this holy season. Rather than a period of penitence in the sense of rehashing our brokenness and mistakes again and again before a God who all too often seems all too reluctant to grant forgiveness, the baptismal character of Lent shapes the sacramental experience of forgiveness along the lines of conversion. Conversion, a turning toward and a “waking up,” is the journey of every believer into the arms and heart of God. May this Lenten season enrich your faith through an experience of the sacrament of Penance, which will awaken for you once again the overwhelming love of God offered and affirmed through Baptism.
