“The light of our Lord’s mercy is always available in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and pierces the darkness of sin.  With great trust, may we confidently approach Jesus who awaits us and experience His mercy in this sacred Season of Lent and always.”
–Bishop Burbidge, Diocese of Arlington

“How many times in my pastoral ministry have I heard it said, ‘Father, I have many sins,’ & I have always pleaded, ‘Don’t be afraid; go to him; he is waiting for you; he will take care of everything.’ We hear many offers from the world around us, but let us take up God’s offer instead: his is a caress of love.” –Pope Francis, Homily, Basilica of St. John Lateran, Divine Mercy Sunday, April 7, 2013.
