Has anyone ever told you, "I'm giving you a second chance, so make the most of it"?  Hopefully, you left the encounter with gratitude, with renewed purpose, with a conviction that this time you were going to get it right.

The truth is, we've all been given a second chance.  When we were baptized, we were reborn as the children of God.  Our sinful nature was buried; what came out of the tomb was a life in the Holy Spirit.  We occasionally lose this new life through grave sin, but God restores our "second chance" through the sacrament of reconciliation.

So let's make the most of it.  If you haven't been to confession in awhile, I encourage you to do so in Lent.  It's alright if it's been 20, 30, even 40 years.  Read the schedule for confession times.  Next, and most importantly, ask God, how can I make the most of this second chance?  What do you want me to do?  Ask God to lead you and he will!  You will leave your encounter with God with gratitude, renewed purpose, and confidence!
