Inside of Confession Booth

Confession

Confession is a sacrament of healing and the place where sinners run to receive God's mercy and grace. In confession, our sins are forgiven when we confess them to the priest who stands in Persona Christi, or in the Person of Christ.

The Importance of the Sacrament of Confession

Sin wounds our relationship with God and damages our communion with the Church. Confession gives us an opportunity to reconcile with the Lord, come back into full communion with the Church, and receive grace from the Lord to stay out of sin.

"If we say, “We are without sin,” we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we acknowledge our sins, he is faithful and  just and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from every wrongdoing." (1 Jn 1:8-9)
