    In this day when there are throngs going up to receive Holy Communion and far less availing of the Sacrament of Reconciliation I believe that, rather than saying (as I heard one Priest say) you are all welcome to receive, it should be emphasised that it is necessary to be in the State of Grace. Christ Himself said “if you love Me keep my Commandments” and also He emphasised the importance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation by saying “Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven. Whose sins you shall retain they are retained”. God bless the Novena and to various dedicated Priests who proclaim the Word of God in an inspiring way. I hope this is the site for comments on the Novena. I tried to log in and this is the only site which came up.
