The Sacrament of Reconciliation: contrition.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also called Confession, Penance and Sacrament of Forgiveness.  This Sacrament has been given to us to confess or acknowledge our sins, seek forgiveness and be reconciled to God and one another.  It is like a bridge.  It helps Christians to live as followers of Jesus, knowing that forgiveness leads to joy and peace.  In this sacrament, those receiving it may be sure of the love and mercy of God.

 

The most important thing that people preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation need is to be sorry for their sins.  There is a special word for this – ‘contrition’.  When you have had a quarrel with someone, you can never make up unless you are really and truly sorry – that is, if you have contrition.  It about realising the consequences of what you have done, the hurt you have caused to others, as well as to yourself.  When you have contrition, you will try very hard not to sin again and there will be peace in your heart. 

 

Explain how God expects us to build bridges with our family and friends before we can take our place in church.  Listen to what Jesus says in Matthew’s Gospel:

 

So if you are about to offer your gift to God at the altar and there you remember that another has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar, go at once and make peace with that person, and then come back and offer your gift to God.                                                                                                                                         Matthew 5: 23-24
