As well as a topic lesson everyday, we thought it would be fun to try a little bit of Yoga each day to help us focus. 

Did you enjoy last weeks Yoga?  Can you remember all of the poses?

Give it a go and send in your pictures of you and your family doing the Yoga poses.


When we do something wrong and then later feel sorry about it, we want to make up for it in some way.  This is a sign that we will try to do better in the future.  The priest gives the person a penance to fulfil.  Sometimes it is a prayer to say or sometimes the priest might ask the person to do something extra.  Then, after the person prays an Act of Sorrow, the priest raises his hands as a sign of God’s love and says the words of forgiveness and absolution.  He asks God to forgive and absolve the person from their sins. To be absolved of sin means to be free from sin.  Those sins are no longer part of your life.  This is what the priest says:


I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.


This sacrament is a special way to experience God’s love and peace.  The person usually stays in church or in a quiet place to say their penance, if it is a prayer.  They will thank God for this opportunity to experience his love and forgiveness and promise to try to do better.



  1. What does it mean to be absolved?
  2. Why does the priest raise his hands?
  3. Who does the priest ask to forgive and absolve their sins?
  4. Why do you think there is a choice for the priest to give a prayer or an action for the penance?
  • Reflect on some of the ways you wish to do better.  Compose a prayer about this and the help/support you seek from the Holy Spirit.
