Lord God, your own Son was delivered into the hands of the wicked,
Yet he prayed for his persecutors and overcame hatred with the blood of the Cross.
Relieve the sufferings of the innocent victims of war; grant them peace of mind,
healing of body, and a renewed faith in your protection and care. Amen.

FOOTPRINTS THROUGH LENT     

Our Footprints series finishes on Friday 12th with the Day of Reconciliation.  Our final speaker is Fr John Walsh OP.  Fr John will speak powerfully of God's mercy and forgiveness.  On this day we have an opportunity to receive the healing and powerful forgiveness of the Sacrament of Confession.  No matter what weighs us down we can come to Confession knowing we will receive neither judgment or condemnation, but mercy and love.  During 7.30pm Mass there will be a chance for Confession.  The Mass will conclude with Eucharistic healing; the Blessed Sacrament will be carried through the Church as in done in Lourdes and Knock.  This is the best way possible to prepare for Holy Week.
