Close encounters with the Living Christ

By Tom Quiner


The Sacrament of Reconciliation nurtures a personal relationship with Christ. God’s boundless mercy is revealed in such a profound way.

He is really with us.

His love, His forgiveness, His strength, His compassion, His eternity surrounds us and fills us. At the Sacrament of Reconciliation, his Divine Mercy lifts us and embraces us with the sweet message that He loves us beyond our ability to comprehend.

Satan despises the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He whispers in our ears that we’re no good, and never will be any good. But at Reconciliation, Christ takes us in His arms and squeezes His love into us in a way that conveys that nothing in the world is more precious in the world to Him than us.

He tells us that if we were the only person that had ever been born, He would still die for us so we could live.

Christ is present to each of us in many ways. The gift of His Sacraments allows us an opportunity for particularly thrilling encounters with the Living Christ.

      Wow! How about if they did it at the Democratic National Convention? I hope that didn’t sound snarky to my liberal readers! Heck, let’s do it at the Republican Convention and the next Planned Parenthood convention.

    Nothing like a good reminder. Thank you, Jesus.
