CORPUS CHRISTI  ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Text Box: Reconciliation

Three elements of Reconciliation are conversion, confession and  celebration. God calls us to forgive as we are forgiven in this sacrament.

Text Box: Many Catholics treasure the sacrament of Reconciliation.
The peace of mind and soul which this sacrament imparts to us is one for which there is no substitute. It is a peace that flows from a certainty, rather than from an unsure hope, that our sins have been forgiven and that we are right with God. (referenced from www.beginningCatholic.com)

Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against Him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.
