"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." —1 John 1:9
Dear Lord, John the Baptist fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah as the voice crying out in the wilderness, "Prepare the way of the Lord." Help me to prepare the way of the Lord in my heart through a good examination of conscience and confession. Thank you for this wonderful sacrament that allows me to begin again in my journey to holiness.
