Shared from Marion Catholic Community:

Advent opens the Church's liturgical calendar. All are invited to start the new year with a good confession. Why receive during this season?

1) New Year, New Start
The first Sunday of Advent, the Church begins a new Liturgical year, a new journey of faith that one the one hand commemorates the event of Jesus Christ, and on the other, opens to its ultimate fulfilment. Every confession is a fresh beginning, a new start. In confession Christ wipes away our sins, opening the door to new life with him.

2) Preparation
St. JP II said " Preparing ourselves to receive him requires first and foremost an attitude of intense and trusting prayer. Making room for him in our hearts demands a serious commitment to convert to his love." The sacrament of reconciliation is a powerful prayer which drives out sin. Casting out the shadows of darkness, we give our hearts over to Christ's light and love.

3) Meditating on the Last Day
Pope Francis writes, “During Advent we do not just live in anticipation of Christmas; we are also called to rekindle the anticipation of the glorious return of Christ, when he will return at the end of time, preparing ourselves, with consistent and courageous choices, for the final encounter with him. We remember Christmas, we await the glorious return of Christ, and also our personal encounter: the day in which the Lord will call. ”For Christians thinking of Jesus “coming” has a double meaning, a double perspective. We think of Christ’s first coming in Bethlehem. Traditionally, too, we also think of his “coming again in glory” as we say in the Creed. Confession readies us to meet Christ, who will come again as our judge. Will we be ready to stand before Jesus and make an account of our lives?

4) Penitential
For many Catholics, confession is a purely penitential exercise. In many places it’s difficult to find convenient, available confessors. Confession demands an examination of conscience, an honest look into the dusty corners of the soul. The priest might not offer any helpful advice, or worse yet, he might be distant or dismissive. And yet we believe that God works through the sacrament anyway. In Advent all of these aspects of confession can be offered up, given over to God as penance. It suits the character of the season!

5) Journey to Bethlehem
How do we walk with Jesus and Mary again to the manger? The most important way is by imitating their closeness to God. In confession, God draws us very near, pouring out his merciful love. In confession we are brought close to God, we might even say, as if we were standing in the midst of the Holy Family in Bethlehem!

6) Don't Wait!
Last-minute Advent confessions are as painful as last-minute Christmas shopping. The best reason to begin Advent with a confession is that you won’t be scrambling in the mad rush before Christmas!!! You too can avoid long lines by taking the time to confess today!

In addition to normal reconciliation times, we have three additional dates for you to come and receive. We'll leave the light on for you this Advent season. ... See MoreSee Less
