This sacrament is rooted in the mission God gave to Christ in his capacity as the Son of man on earth to go and forgive sins (cf. Matt. 9:6). Thus, the crowds who witnessed this new power “glorified God, who had given such authority to men” (Matt. 9:8; note the plural “men”). After his resurrection, Jesus passed on his mission to forgive sins to his ministers, telling them, “As the Father has sent me, even so I send you. . . . 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 20:21–23).

Since it is not possible to confess all of our many daily faults, we know that sacramental reconciliation is required only for grave or mortal sins—but it is required, or Christ would not have commanded it.

This handy-sized tri-fold leaflet contains an Examination of Conscience to assist with preparation for Confession.

It also outlines the process for Confession once in the confessional, followed by an Act of Contrition.

Additionally, it includes a short Prayer of Thanksgiving to be said whilst spending some quiet reflection time after receiving this beautiful sacrament.
