The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is a critical part of our spiritual life. It is an opportunity for us to acknowledge our sins and repent of them, receiving God's grace to help us move forward.
Many people tend to avoid the Sacrament of Reconciliation because they fear judgment or shame; However, it’s important to remember that God loves us unconditionally and wants us to come to Him with honesty and humility. Confession allows us to heal our relationships with both God and others, and to receive grace and strength to live a better life.
“Someone can say, ‘I confess my sins only to God.’ Yes, you can say to God, ‘forgive me,’ and say your sins. But our sins are also against our brothers, against the Church. This is why it is necessary to ask forgiveness of the Church and of our brothers, in the person of the Priest . . . Forgiveness is not something we can give ourselves.”
- Pope Francis
