The Weapon Of Mass Destruction

As I look at the special stole of the Missionary of Mercy we were given by the Holy Father last week, I realize deeper and deeper the meaning and the sheer power of the service of the Missionary of Mercy in the Church in the Jubilee Year of Mercy. This stole first and foremost reminds all of us what we priests have at our disposal since the day of our ordination to priesthood.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a genuine weapon of mass destruction of the Evil One and of the aftermath of the desolation and destruction caused in our souls by the devil. This Sacrament is pure and victorious Divine Mercy "in action" restoring us to the dignity of daughters and sons of the Father of Mercy invited always to live to the fullest Father's Love in the deepest relationship with Him through His Life in us and through us towards others in the sanctifying grace.
