Making All Things New Prayer

God our Father, through the Gospel and the Eucharist,
You bring us together as Your Church in the Archdiocese of New York.

Send us Your Holy Spirit, to enlighten our minds and guide
our actions as we plan for the future of parish life in this Archdiocese.

Help us learn new ways to strengthen and revitalize our parish communities, and to be
good stewards of the spiritual and material gifts that sustain them.

Bless our work, so that our parishes may continue to witness
to the truth of the Gospel, and be a sign of Your love for all people.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen

God's Gift of Forgiveness

A Pastoral Exhortation on the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

“Peace be with you!” With these words, the Risen Lord greeted his frightened Apostles in the Upper Room on the day of his Resurrection. They were troubled, anxious, and fearful—much like each one of us at some point in our lives. Christ repeated the words, “Peace be with you.” But then he added, “Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them” (Jn 20:19-23).

What an extraordinary gift! The Risen Lord was proclaiming that all the suffering he had just endured was in order to make available the gifts of salvation and forgiveness. He wanted the Apostles to receive these gifts. He wanted them to become apostles of this forgiveness to others.

From Pope Francis

“War is a scandal to be mourned every day. We see war in the newspapers ever and we're used to reading about it: the number of its victims is just part of our daily accounts. We hold events to commemorate the centenary of the Great War and everyone is scandalized by the many millions of dead. But today it’s the same… instead of one great war, there are small wars everywhere. When we were children in Sunday School and we were told the story of Cain and Abel, we couldn’t accept that someone would kill their own brother.
