RECONCILIATION

PURPOSE OF THE TWO
SACRAMENTS OF HEALING,
PENANCE AND
ANOINTING OF THE SICK:
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
HAS WILLED THAT HIS
CHURCH CONTINUE
HIS WORK OF HEALING
AND SALVATION
EVEN AMONG HER OWN
MEMBERS.

For those whose sins you forgive.” (Jn 20:21-23) . they are retained. so am I sending you. as the Father has sent Me. they are forgiven. Receive the Holy Spirit.“Peace be with you. for those whose sins you retain.

His call is METANOIA: to change one’s life and one’s heart we slowly usher in experience of God’s Kingdom .

THE FIRST STEP IN RETURNING TO THE FATHER FROM WHOM ONE HAS STRAYED FROM SIN .SACRAMENT OF CONVERSION BECAUSE IT MAKES SACRAMENTALLY PRESENT. THE CALL OF JESUS TO CONVERSION.

PENANCE AND. SATISFACTION .SACRAMENT OF PENANCE SINCE IT CONSECRATES THE CHRISTIAN SINNER’S PERSONAL AND ECCLESIAL STEPS OF CONVERSION.

IT IS AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND PRAISE OF THE HOLINESS OF GOD AND OF HIS MERCY TOWARDS SINFUL MAN .SACRAMENT OF CONFESSION THE DISCLOSURE OR CONFESSION OF SIN IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THIS SACRAMENT AS CONFESSION.

.SACRAMENT OF FORGIVENESS SINCE BY THE PRIEST’S SACRAMENTAL ABSOLUTION GOD GRANTS THE PENITENT PARDON AND PEACE.

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION SINCE IT IMPARTS TO THE SINNER THE LOVE OF GOD WHO RECONCILES .

THE NEW LIFE RECEIVED IN CHRISTIAN INITIATION HAS NOT ABOLISHED THE FRAILTY AND WEAKNESS OF HUMAN NATURE NOR THE INCLINATION TO SIN CALLED BY THE CHURCH AS CONCUPISCENCE HENCE THERE IS A NEED FOR CONTINUOUS CONVERSION THROUGH THE SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION .

RECONCILIATION OF INDIVIDUAL PENITENTS/PRIVATE 2.Three forms: 1. RITE FOR RECONCILIATION OF SEVERAL PENITENTS W/ INDIVIDUAL CONFESSION AND ABSOLUTION/ COMMUNAL PENANCE 3. RECONCILIATION OF PENITENTS W/ GENERAL ABSOLUTION .

) – penitent responds w/ Amen . through death and resurrection of His Son.FORM AND MATTER: MATTER: penitent & confessor that enter into dialogue FORM: PRAYER OF ABSOLUTION (God. through the ministry of the Church. the Father of mercies. may God give you pardon and peace and I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy spirit. has reconciled the world to Himself and sent Holy Spirit among us for the forgiveness of sins.

ACTS OF THE PENITENT CONTRITION THE SORROW AND DETESTATION OF THE SOUL FOR THE SIN COMMITTED TOGETHER WITH THE RESOLUTION NOT TO COMMIT SIN AGAIN .

CONFESSION OF SINS THROUGH SUCH AN ADMISSION. TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEM AND THEREBY OPENS HIMSELF AGAIN TO GOD AND TO THE COMMUNION OF THE CHURCH . MAN LOOKS SQUARELY AT THE SINS HE IS GUILTY OF.

RAISED UP FROM SIN. ONE MUST STILL RECOVER HIS FULL SPIRITUAL HEALTH BY DOING SOMETHING MORE TO MAKE AMENDS FOR THE SIN: HE MUST MAKE “SATIFACTION FOR” OR EXPIATE HIS SINS. . THIS SATISFACTION IS ALSO CALLED PENANCE.SATISFACTION ONE MUST DO WHAT IS POSSIBLE TO REPAIR THE HARM.

. AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. WITH THE PRIEST AS THEIR COLLABORATOR BY VIRTUE OF THEIR ORDINATION HAVE THE POWER TO FORGIVE ALL SINS IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER. AND OF THE SON.MINISTER OF THIS SACRAMENT THE BISHOPS.

EFFECT OF THIS SACRAMENT       Reconciliation with God and with the Church Recovery of the state of grace Forgiveness of sins Remission of eternal punishment and part of temporal punishment Peace. serenity of conscience. spiritual consolation Increase of spiritual strength for the struggle .

RECONCILIATION WITH THE CHURCH THE SACRAMENT OF PANANCE REPAIRS OR RESTORES OUR FRATERNAL COMMUNION THE SINNER IS MADE STRONGER BY THE EXCHANGE OF SPRITUAL GOODS AMONG ALL THE LIVING MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH .
