Casting away darkness, putting on light
In today's reading (Romans 13:11-14) to begin the Church New Year, St. Paul urges us: "Cast away the works of darkness and to put on the armor of light." There's no better way to kick-off this New Year to achieve that, a resolution to go to Confession in order to have your darkness annihilated by the light of Christ.
Here are two Examinations of Conscience to help you prepare for Confession. Lots of others can be found online.
There plenty of opportunities to make your confession. Every Sunday at St. Willibrord's before mass 10 to 10:15. I'll also be hearing confessions this evening at 7pm before and after the newly arrived late Sunday Mass.
You can always, anytime make an appointment with me. And there's lots of opportunities at the Oratory or other parishes. Finally, December 14th, there's going to be an evening of reconciliation including confessions at Saint Ignatius.
Now is the moment to resolve to cast away the works of darkness and put upon you the armor of light!
