Reconciliation-Confession

 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is for our spiritual healing.  According to the Gospels, after the Resurrection, Jesus appeared to the apostles, breathed on them, and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.  Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.”  (John 20:22-23)  That is why Jesus left us this sacrament, to heal our spiritual wounds, which we call sin.  Receiving this sacrament pardons us from our sins through the mercy of God and reconciles us with the Church Community.  Reconciliation is offered every Sunday before mass.
