Detroit, Mich., Oct 11, 2016 / 23:59 pm
Seeking God's forgiveness for generations of failures in the Church, the Archdiocese of Detroit held a Mass of Pardon asking God for grace and mercy.
"Repent and believe in the Good News, this is an inseparable prayer," Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron said in his homily for the Oct. 7 Mass.
He said the Mass is about "transforming those faults in our sins, the wounds we bear that bear death, and transforming those wounds into new sources of life."
"That's what pardon is in the Kingdom of God. It's not about forgetting, it's about transformation. Transforming our lives though Jesus Christ, now and forever," the archbishop said, according to the Michigan Catholic.
