Ads on METRO #1: The Light is On For You
I see interesting ads on my commute to work. Many of them have inspired blog ideas, so I've decided to start a regular post on the subject. This week's post is appropriate for the Lenten season.
The Archdiocese of Washington posted this ad on METRO cars. Their program, entitled "The Light is on for You", calls Catholics back to the faith with something truly innovative: the sacrament of reconciliation. That's right. No gimmicks, no frills, no support groups, nothing except the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life.
On Wednesdays, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, parishes across the Archdiocese offer confession. The program's website carries a pastoral letter and a step by step guide to the sacrament.
Will it work? I believe so. Nothing calls people home like forgiveness and salvation. I asked a local priest how it was going. He told me he's heard some very good confessions.
Bravo to the Archbishop of Washington for getting back to basics...and if you live in the D.C. area:
