24 Hours for the Lord will be celebrated on Friday and Saturday 20th and 21st March. Many parishes will participate in this worldwide initiative of Pope Francis with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
This year the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelisation suggest that we meditate on the words that Jesus addressed to the sinful woman: ‘Your sins are forgiven’ (Luke 7, 36-50)
The Pontifical Council suggest that the proceedings could conclude with the celebration of the Saturday Vigil Mass for Sunday adding that the season of Lent is a time of repentance and of personal conversion. They express the hope that this event may help place the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the centre of the Church’s mission for the new evangelisation
