Pastor’s Message How to Make a Good Confession The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a good way to take a closer look at your life and make a fresh start. Penance and Reconciliation starts with our personal acceptance that we have sinned and done wrong in the sight of God. Our heart is moved to sorrow from the knowledge that we have failed to act in love and have distanced ourselves from our creator. Receiving the Sacrament is simple and there is no reason to be afraid or hesitant to do so. Priest know that they represent Christ and they have nothing but compassion and understating for those who come to receive forgiveness. Furthermore they are under a sacred seal never to reveal under any circumstances what has been confessed to them. Here is an outline of what you can expect. The priest will be glad to help you. • Go to the priest. You can kneel behind screen or sit and face him. He will welcome you, and you will both make the sign of the cross. The priest will pray for you and may read a Scripture passage. • Confess your sins. The priest will discuss your sins with you and provide spiritual advice. • Receive a penance. The priest will talk to you about doing something as a sign of your desire to change. It may be saying some prayers or doing a loving action. • Tell God you are sorry. You can say your own words or an act of contrition that you have memorized. • Receive absolution. The priest proclaims the works of absolution and God forgives your sins. • Conclude. The priest says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, “ and you respond, “His mercy endures forever. The priest will dismiss you and you can respond “thank you” or “Amen” St. John Neumann’s Knights of Columbus Council makes your Thanksgiving easy.
