Sacrament of

Reconciliation

“Christ Himself is waiting for

you. He will heal you, and you

will be at peace with God”

-John Paul II

How to Go to Confession:

⊕ Begin by making the sign of

the Cross and saying:

“Bless me, father, for I have

sinned.

It has been___(weeks/months/years)

since my last confession and these

are my sins.”

Confess your sins

When you finish confessing, end with the

words: “for these and for all of my

sins I am truly sorry.”

⊕ The priest will offer some advice and

then assign you a penance.

⊕ You will then pray the Act of

Contrition (on next page).

⊕ The priest will then say the prayer of

Absolution, where the Lord frees you

from sin and reconciles you with

Himself and His Church.

 

How to go to Confession

1. You always have the option to go to confession anonymously, that is, behind a screen or face to face, if you so desire.

 

2. After the priest greets you in the name of Christ, make the sign of the cross. He may choose to recite a reading from Scripture, after which you say: "Bless me Father for I have sinned. It has been (state how long) since my last confession. These are my sins."

 

3. Tell your sins simply and honestly to the priest. You might even want to discuss the circumstances and the root causes of your sins and asks the priest for advice or direction.

 

4. Listen to the advice the priest gives you and accept the penance from him. Then make an Act of Contrition for your sins.

 

5. The priest will then dismiss you with the words of praise: "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. You respond: "For His mercy endures forever." The priest will then conclude with: "The Lord has freed you from your sins. Go in peace." And you respond by saying: "Thanks be to God."

 

6. Spend some time with Our Lord thanking and praising Him for the girt of His mercy. Try to perform your penance as soon as possible.
