John the Baptist calls us to repentance. It is not enough just to
make a resolution to change. We have to follow through and
convert from our sinful ways and do penance for the sin that
separates us from God. The best way to do this is through
sacramental confession.

FR. ISAAC HECKER QUOTE
“The actual life, therefore, of a true Christian
upon earth, is a participation of the happiness
of the kingdom of heaven. The aim, then, of
the Gospel is not to separate heaven from
earth, or the earth from heaven, or to place
between them an antagonism; the object of the
Gospel is to bring them together, unite
them, and make them one; briefly to
establish the reign of God ‘upon earth as it
is in heaven’.” [How To Be Happy, 1863]

of the Paulist Fathers
