St. Peter Parish Rosary Program
While the elect deal with sin through the Scrutinies and the waters of the font; those already baptized do so through the Sacrament of Penance. Early Christian teachers called this sacrament "second Baptism," because it is intended to permit us to start again to live the baptismal life in its fullness. Those who experience the loving mercy of God in the Sacrament of Reconciliation find themselves standing alongside the newly baptized at Easter filled with great joy at the new life God has given all of us. The perspective of many is that penance amounts to wearing ashes and “giving something up”, but only for the season’s duration when in reality what we are to give up more than anything else is sin; to give up whatever keeps us from living out our baptismal promises fully. And the goal is to root sin out of our lives forever. Conversion means leaving behind an old way of living and acting in order to embrace new life in Christ. Pray the Rosary Daily! Through it Holy Love takes root in hearts and ignites personal holiness.
