What is Penance and Reconciliation?
  • You receive this sacrament at a young age (8 years old)
  • It is in the healing stage of spiritual life.
  • In the sacrament of penance you are called upon to fast, give prayer, and do almsgiving.

  • This sacrament, we restore our friendship and therefore the blessings of God's kingdom

examples from jesus ministry
Examples from Jesus’ Ministry
  • Jesus shared many parables that helped us understand God's mercy. The parable of the Prodigal Son is one of the more recognized that we use to understand the mercy and strength of God's forgiveness.
  • Not also did Jesus speak of God's mercy through parables, but he also put God's mercy through parables. He also put God's mercy into action by granting forgiveness to all sinners. He knew that we as humans would need continuous healing and reconciliation. Jesus gave the authority to the Apostles. Today, priests are empowered to forgive sins by this same authority, given to them in Holy Orders.
