The Sacraments: Can a broken friendship with God be restored?
Bishop Robert Barron's: The Sacraments
Can a broken friendship with God be restored?
God does not give up on us, even when we give up on him.
He acts as a loving Father, like the father in the parable of the Prodigal Son.
God in Christ gives us mercy and forgiveness, which is extended through the Church in the sacrament of Reconciliation.
It’s our choice to accept or reject God’s outstretched hand of forgiveness.
Hear more about God’s desire to be united with us always:

Lent was obviously a time for self-denial, but in middle school I learned the art of recognizing exceptions to the rule. I could eat candy on Sundays. And then there were feast days. Obviously I could eat candy on feast days! Always looking for the exception, it was easy to miss the beauty of the law.
Jesus makes His point clearly today: His disciples, like Him, must always be ready to forgive.
Brothers and sisters, do we miss the law’s beauty by seeking the exception? We like to think that Jesus can’t mean forgiving the high school grudge, the always annoying relative, or the person who broke up with me! But in fact, his math means always. And if we’ll get better at forgiving, then we’ll become more accustomed to the freedom from slavery that He’s always intended for us. Sometimes we set the shackles. But today, and always, Christ intends for us to be free. Besides you, who needs your forgiveness today?
