Reconciliation

It is called the sacrament of Reconciliation, because it imparts to the sinner the love of God who reconciles: "Be reconciled to God (2 Cor 5:20).  He who lives by God's merciful love is ready to respond to the Lord's call: "Go; first be reconciled to your brother. (Mt 5:24)

It is called the sacrament of conversion because it makes sacramentally present Jesus' call to conversion, the first step in returning to the Father from whom one has strayed by sin. (Mk 1:15, Lk 15:18)  It is called the sacrament of Penance, since it consecrates the Christian sinner's personal and ecclesial steps of conversion, penance, and satisfaction.  Christ's call to conversion continues to resound in the lives of Christians. (#1423)

It is called the sacrament of confession , since the disclosure or confession of sins to a priest is an essential element of this sacrament.  In a profound sense, it is also a "confession" - acknowledgment and praise - of the holiness of God and of his mercy toward sinful man.(#1424)

Only God forgives sins.(Mk 2:7)  Since he is the Son of God, Jesus says of himself, "The Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins" and exercises this divine power: "Your sins are forgiven” (Mk 2:5, 10, Lk 7:48).  Further, by virtue of his divine authority he gives this power to men to exercise in his name.(Jn 20: 21:23, #1441)

During his public life Jesus not only forgave sins, but also made plain the effect of this forgiveness: he reintegrated forgiven sinners into the community of the People of God from which sin had alienated or even excluded them.  A remarkable sign of this is the fact that Jesus receives sinners at his table, a gesture that expresses in an astonishing way both God's forgiveness and the return to the bosom of the People of God.(#1443)

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. (#1422)
