Additionally, a special way to observe this solemn season is to participate in the sacrament of Reconciliation. Reconciliation Monday in the Diocese of Wilmington will take place March 25 at all 56 parish churches in the diocese. More details on this annual event will be available on thedialog.org soon. Follow us on social:  www.facebook.com/TheDialogWilmington or www.instagram.com/thedialogwilm/ for updates.

“I ask you: have you ever thought that every time we go to the confessional, there is joy and celebration in heaven? Have you ever thought about that? It is beautiful … and fills us with great hope, because there is no sin to which we have stooped from which, by the grace of God, we cannot rise up again. There is no person who is beyond recovery, no-one is beyond recovery. Because God never ceases to want what is good for us, even when we sin!” — Pope Francis, Angelus, Sept. 11, 2016
