The Church encourages us to make confession a regular part of our spiritual life, especially during the holy season of Lent, as we reflect on our baptism and repentance. Bishop Kevin J. Farrell is helping to make this experience possible by arranging for a Lenten initiative called The Light Is ON For You.
April 1st, all parishes in the Catholic Diocese of Dallas will have their "lights on" for confession and quiet prayer so that Catholics can come to or return to this incredible source of God’s grace, mercy and healing.
"Don't be afraid of Confession. When you go into a confessional, you have so many emotions, including shame. But afterwords you feel free, great, beautiful and forgiven ... Each one of you should ask yourselves: When was the last time I went to Confession? If a lot of time has passed, then don't let another day go by. Go forward."

In his Lenten message for 2015, Pope Francis asks us to be firm against indifference (see Jas 5:8) and to seek a heart that is "merciful, attentive and generous." Embrace his call to mercy by reaching out to those in need. Be attentive to the Lenten call to prayer and be generous with your time and treasure. Take inspiration for you Lenten journey from this calendar and rise up the needs of the world in prayer. Sacrifice by giving up food and material wants. Offer your time, talent, and treasure as a good steward of the gifts God has given you.
