Reconciliation, Lent & The Year of Mercy

We have always been encouraged to use the Sacrament of Reconciliation in a particular way at this time of year as part of our Lenten preparation for the great feast of Easter. Pope Francis has placed the Sacrament at the very heart of this Jubilee Year of Mercy. Fr. Kevin Hanley OFM, a confessor at the Vatican, recently led the Scots College Community in a weekend of Recollection focussing on the Sacrament and here, he reflects on the Sacrament.
