The Sacrament of Reconciliation with a Missionary of Mercy

Msgr. Majoros will hear confessions on the first Sunday of each month of 2017 at 5:30 PM in the Basilica.
In his Apostolic letter Misericordia et misera, Pope Francis extended the faculties of the specially appointed priests, known as Missionaries of Mercy, beyond the Jubilee Year of Mercy as “a concrete sign that the grace of the Jubilee remains alive and effective the world over” (MM 9). The Archdiocese of Philadelphia rejoices to have one of her own priests appointed to this ministry to “hear confessions, and preach on behalf of and promote the Sacrament of Reconciliation.” The Missionaries of Mercy will continue to have the authority, granted by the Holy Father, to pardon these sins reserved to the Holy See:  Profaning the Eucharistic species by taking them away or keeping them for a sacrilegious purpose;  Use of physical force against the Roman Pontiff;  Absolution of an accomplice in a sin against the Sixth Commandment of the Decalogue;  A direct violation against the sacramental seal by a confessor. click here for more details.
