“God never tires of forgiving us! The problem is that… at times we get tired of asking for forgiveness.”

The Jubilee Year of Mercy is the opportune moment to change our lives, to contemplate the mystery of mercy and rediscover God’s forgiveness which knows no bounds.

Join the St. Josemaria Institute as we welcome Fr. Peter Armenio who will guide us through the Sacrament of Confession; explain the meaning of sin, penance, and mercy, especially in light of the teachings of Pope Francis; and, how we can prepare for Confession so that we will not tire of asking for forgiveness and being merciful to everyone.
