If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples,
and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
— John 8:31, from today’s Gospel

Radical honesty – with ourselves and with God – is never easy.  But knowing and naming the truth is at the heart of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Have you ever experienced having a burden lifted by simply sharing with someone you trust?  Is there anything in your life now that needs to be shared and given over to God?

If you haven’t done so recently, perhaps you should consider going to a local parish to experience the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
