‘Confession is an act of honesty and courage - an act of entrusting ourselves, beyond sin, to the mercy of a loving and forgiving God.’ Pope St John Paul II

Because Jesus’ mission on earth was to free us from our sins, the sacrament of confession continues this work today. Through the ministry of the priest, the sacrament of reconciliation (or confession) frees us from our sins. Even though our baptism unites us with Christ and his victory over sin and death on the cross, we still sin, and this is where the sacrament of reconciliation can help us to repair our relationship with God and our fellow man, offering us forgiveness for our sins and setting us free. Jesus himself instituted this sacrament in his earthly ministry when he said to his apostles:

‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.’ (John 20: 22-23)
