We’re over halfway through Lent. Is your heart feeling better?

This week we’ll look at our spiritual rib cages. Perhaps we feel “caged in” by our bad habits and addictions. But there are ways to expand our hearts by the protective rib cage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Confession gives us spiritual strength and protection against future temptation. Use opportunities this week to express your sorrow to God or to apologize to someone or make amends.

As this weekend’s responsorial psalm asks,
Create a clean heart in me, O God.
