GOD RICH IN MERCY

24 Hours for the Lord

God Rich in Mercy (Eph 2:4) is the Pastoral Resource that will be used by Catholics who join Pope Francis in the second year of his initiative, "24 Hours for the Lord." This title mirrors the theme that will guide reflection this year.

The purpose of this resource is to offer some suggestions that will enable parishes and Christian communities to prepare themselves to live the Pope's initiative during the penitential season of Lent. These suggestions may be adapted to local needs and customs, as is appropriate.

For 24 hours on March 13-14, the faithful will be offered the opportunity for Confession and Eucharistic Adoration in parishes designated by Bishops in their respective dioceses. It is thought, as possible, the 24-hour period could conclude on Saturday evening with the Vigil Mass for the Fourth Sunday of Lent. During this time, Pope Francis himself will preside at a penitential celebration at St. Peter's Basilica in order to place the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the center of the Church's mission of the new evangelizatio n. Pope Francis on Confession Throughout his Pontificate, the Holy Father has spoken frequently of the importance of mercy, forgiveness, and Confession. In a General Audience in November 2013, he said, "You turn red once, you're absolved of your sins , and you move on." At another General Audience in February 2014, he encouraged his flock: "Do not be afraid of Confession! … When one finishes Confession one leaves free , grand, beautiful, forgiven, candid, happy. This is the beauty of Confession! … Jesus is there, and Jesus is more benevolent than priests. Jesus receives you; He receives you with so much love. Be courageous and go to Confession!"
