Message from Archbishop Schnurr

Seek the Lord – March 2019


The Light is On for You was on Tuesday, March 19. Although the sacrament of Reconciliation is available anytime, this was a special day set aside throughout the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to receive God’s forgiveness in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

The name of this initiative reflects the reality that the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Confession or Penance, is a sacrament of healing and a light that is calling us home. In Scripture, light is frequently associated with Christ and darkness is always associated with sin or the Evil One.

The Catholic Church is sometimes accused of being obsessed with sin. It would be more accurate to say the Church. . . .
