Reconciliation

Penance“… Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven. If you retain the sins of any, the are retained.” (Jn 20:23)

Through the Sacrament of Pennance, Jesus Christ Himself, through the actions of a priest, forgives our sins – venial and mortal. Venial sin harms the spiritual relationship between God and man. Mortal sin completely breaks the spiritual bond between God and man.

“Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against him, are are, at the same time, reconciled with the church …” (CCC 1422)
