Receive the Holy Spirit! Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven, whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. John 20:22
In the sacrament of reconciliation we find new life and peace through God’s mercy and unconditional forgiveness. It is one of the clearest signs of God’s love for his people.
Interior penance is a conversion of heart toward God and away from sin, which implies the intention to change one’s life because of hope in divine mercy (Catechism 1431). External acts of penance include fasting, prayer, and almsgiving (CCC 1434).
