It is not sin which is at the heart of the sacramental celebration but rather God’s mercy, which is infinitely greater than any guilt of ours. ~Pope Benedict XVI, 3/7/08 Address
It is the Lord who forgives all your sins,
who heals every one of your ills,
who redeems your life from the grave,
who crowns you with mercy and compassion,
who fills your life with good things,
renewing your youth like an eagle's.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!
~Psalm 103:3-5, 22
