Call to Reconciliation
In becoming one of us, God became poor so we could receive the riches of mercy. In coming to us, God took on our death, so we could be made alive together with Christ. Come, offer your confessions, knowing that by grace you have been saved.
Assurance of Pardon
L: How much does God love us? Enough to send the divine heart, hope, and spirit to us, not to condemn us, but to save us.
P: Not by our speaking or doing, but by God’s good and precious grace are we saved. Thanks be to God! Amen.
