First Reconciliation -- Here's a Quote!

On the 4Real forum we've been talking alot about First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation -- creating notebooks, how best to prepare our children for the sacraments, etc.

Today (May 15th) is the feast day of St. Isidore the Farmer. This is what he had to say about the Sacrament of Reconciliation (as quoted at under "Reflections from the Saints":

Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in confession.
– St. Isidore of Seville

This would be a wonderful quote to use for the notebook, don't you think?
