The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Christ’s love is shown in the fact that he seeks the lost and heals the sick. This is why he gave us the Sacraments of Healing and Restoration, in which we are freed from sin and strengthened in our physical and spiritual weakness.

One way in which the Lord does this is through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as the Sacrament of Penance or Confession. Through this Sacrament, we confess any serious sins that we remember after making a thorough examination of conscience and receive sacramental absolution from the priest who acts in Persona Christi (the person of Christ). In this way, we are reconciled to the Lord and to His Church.
