Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against Him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1422

In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we approach God understanding how sin has hurt our soul and ask for his love and mercy. Confession helps the person to acknowledge one’s sinfulness but not to despair. Through the graces of this Sacrament, a person is forgiven of our past sins, and they resolve to work on the virtues and habits that will help them be closely united to their faith in God.

As a result of Original Sin, human nature is weakened. Baptism, by imparting the life of Christ’s grace, takes away Original Sin, and turns us back toward God. The consequences of this weakness and the inclination to evil persist, and we often commit personal or actual sin.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, 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.
