From Father Fasching

In the New Covenant founded by Christ Himself, being reconciled means making use of the Sacrament of Penance. In this Sacrament we “obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offence committed against Him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins” Lumen gentium, 11).

Our greatest gift is the Eucharist. Along with our duty to go to Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation, we have a responsibility to always receive Holy Communion in a state of grace. We must remember that love of God takes precedence over all things. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength. This is the greatest and first commandment” (Mt 22:27-38). We must remember that there is an order of charity and God always comes first in our lives.

In Christ,

Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
