True Mercy Requires Real Remorse

Lately, I have been a bit underwhelmed by the preaching here at St. Ann's and Sacred Heart (ahem), but since at least half of this weekend's homily was lifted directly from Jennifer Fulwiler's article in The National Catholic Register, it actually seemed worth sharing.

The story of the Prodigal Son shows us mercy, but mercy requires honesty and remorse. Fulwiler gives a great illustration of how only Confession aloud really gets us past our rationalizations to real remorse.
