Sacrament of Reconciliation/Penance

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” And when he said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any they are retained.”

The Gospel according to John 20:21-23

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of our faith. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, instituted this sacrament, so that we, as sinners, can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ. Also known as the Sacrament of Penance, it has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it, we find God’s unconditional love and forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.
