Seeds of the Word - The church's biggest challenge in the Year of Mercy

We belong to the church of forgiveness. We believe in God who sent his Son to die on a cross for the forgiveness of our sins. Hanging from that cross, he forgave even the ones who had nailed him. Jesus taught us to forgive 70 times seven, that is, everything. The Son of God, who never tires of forgiving, gave his apostles and, through them, priests the power to forgive our sins in the name of God.
