Card. Dolan proposes Confession as the Sacrament of the New Evangelization
October 9, 2012. (Romereports.com) During day two of the synod, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, said the Sacrament of Confession should be the Sacrament of the Year of Faith.
Cardinal Dolan said rediscovering the sense of apologizing and forgiveness are key for the New Evangelization.
Another bishop recommended that the Pope consecrate the world to the Holy Spirit. If the Pope accepts, the ceremony could take place on day of Pentecost, 2013.
