As Catholics, we have a unique opportunity to seek peace and grace in the sacrament of Reconciliation. Henri Nouwen writes, “This [sacrament] calls us to let go of old hurts in the Name of God.” A regular practice of confessing and being absolved is something that has changed not only my relationship with God and myself, but also with others in my life. When I am in the practice of reflecting on how my actions have done harm, I am more conscientious about the damage of sin on relationships of all kinds.

or, simply answer:
Did you pray today?
