Young people give their testimonies about confession, the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation. Pope Francis said at his first Angelus: "Brothers and Sisters, God's face is the face of a merciful father who is always patient .. He always has patience, patience with us, he understand us, he waits for us, he does not tire of forgiving us if we are able to return to him with a contrite heart .. He is the loving Father who always pardons, who has that heart of mercy for us all." JPII: "When we go to confession, when we bring our sins to Christ in the Sacrament of Penance, we meet our Saviour in one of the most personal encounters available to us on earth. He receives us with gentleness and mercy and grants us the pardon we seek. He grants us the grace of conversion and renews our minds and hearts with his light and peace. In this way, he prepares us to be peacemakers in the world." Track: 'Fighting the Lukewarm Cold' by Joe Zambon. Visit Totus2us.com for much more, which is inspired by Blessed John Paul II, Papa Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. Totus Tuus (All Yours) was JPII's motto to Our Lady.
