Penance/Confession

Penance/Confession

The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation (commonly called Confession, Reconciliation or Penance) in which the faithful obtain divine mercy for the sins committed against God and neighbour and are reconciled with the community of the Church.By this sacrament Christians are freed from sins committed after Baptism. As sin is an offense against God, a rupture of communion with God and damages communion with the Church. For this reason, conversion and wholeness entails both God's forgiveness and reconciliation with the Church, which are expressed in the liturgy of the sacrament of Reconciliation.

View this video about Reconciliation (Penance), which has been prepared by the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops. It gives a clear description of the theology and the way we celebrate this sacrament.
