Praying for the person you wronged is excellent advice. The idea of offering a Mass for them is wonderful too. When you speak to your priest, he will be able to give you more suggestions as to any restitution you should make, perhaps to a particular charity. We are also approaching the time of the Peter’s Pence collection. That would be a wonderful charity to contribute to.
The purpose of the Peter’s Pence Collection is to provide the Holy Father with the financial means to respond with emergency assistance to those who are suffering as a result of war, oppression, natural disaster, and disease. This collection was started centuries ago to provide financial support for the Pope and has evolved to fund the Holy See’s charitable actions for those in need.
The Peter’s Pence Collection has raised nearly $190 million to support our suffering brothers and sisters around the globe. THANK YOU for standing in solidarity with the Holy See with your generosity. Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in faith who are facing adversity.
The national collection date for the Peter’s Pence Collection is the weekend of June 27th and 28th, 2009. Your diocese may take up the Collection at a different time. Check with your diocese or call the USCCB Office of National Collections Promotions department at 202-541-3346.
If your diocese takes up the Collection at another time, please remember that resources are always available here.
