Father Bozada: This Lent, Allow Jesus To Set You Free!

Visit Him In The Confessional!

Jesus and LazarusMy Dear People,

One might think that if someone could raise the dead, that their credibility might be somewhat solid. This was not the case with Jesus. Lazarus had been dead for four days. He was in the tomb. Lazarus was buried and the period of his mourning was at hand. Martha and Mary, his sisters, were grieving, each in their own way. Martha goes out to give Jesus a piece of her mind. “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would never had died.” Instead of dealing with her concern, Jesus poses another. “Do you believe that your brother will rise from the dead?” He asks, “Yes, in the Resurrection on the last day” Martha answers. She goes on to repeat the confession of St. Peter. “I believe that you are the Christ.”

Having received her confession of faith, Jesus approaches the tomb and calls Lazarus out. Still bound in burial clothes, the dead man raised up, hobbles forth. To the great amazement of the crowds, Lazarus is returned to his sisters. “Untie him and set him free.” From that point on, many Jews came to believe in Jesus. This Lent, allow Jesus to set you free. This is best accomplished in the confessional. Remember your Easter duty this year… a minimum of one confession each Lent unless you are in a state of mortal sin. Come let Jesus heal you.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark Bozada

  • The Confessional is the hospital of the soul. It’s in there that we receive the graces to heal not only from the wounds of sin, but of wounds from abuse. I know of one woman who would mention her abusive past in the confessional and the grace of the Sacrament healed her faster and more effectively than any pills or therapy.

    Take your wounds to Our Lord in the Sacrament of Confession and let Him heal you.

    In the Sorrowful Heart
