Guide for Sacrament of Reconciliation
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) helps us to grasp that we are responsible for our lives, for how we think and act.
We are invited to examine how our words and actions have hurt and offended others, and how our lives do or do not reflect God’s standards.
This sacrament enables us to see that we are not isolated individuals but members of the body of Christ and the human family. Our sin injures that body and violates the integrity of others. The Sacrament of Reconciliation accentuates the communal nature of our sinfulness and reconciliation.
