“For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in [the Son], and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” (Colossians 1:19-20)

02-09-18: God’s initiative of reconciliation through Christ transforms believers into God’s new creation. In response to all this, the believers arecalled to participate in God’s mission of reconciliation. The church is called to be a living sign of the one body of Christ, an agent of hope and holistic reconciliation in our broken and fragmented world. Keeping in mind the mission of reconciliation, the Shrine of Our Lady of Health, Harihar organized a day of reconciliation to the parishioners and the pilgrims. Most Rev. Dr Francis Serrao, the Bishop of the Diocese of Shimoga not only graced the occasion but also heard the confessions of the faithful. Thousands of pilgrims with teary eyes, made their confessions and returned home forgiven and blessed. Many priests willingly and prayerfully administered the sacrament of reconciliation. Reconciliation is God’s initiative, restoring a broken world to God’s intentions by reconciling “to himself all things” through Christ (Col 1:20): the relation-ship between people and God, between people, and with God’s created earth. As Christians, let us participate with God by being transformed into ambassadors of reconciliation.
