Transcript of Julie Le: Reconciliation

The Sacrament Of Reconciliation
Christians are forgiven by God and the church. Whenever we are forgiven, we get the chance of being closer to God.
"Your sins are forgiven."

(Luke 5:20)
Sins are mistakes or
choices that we have made
that might have taken
us farther away
From God.
A conscience is a little voice in your head that tells you right from wrong.
The Good...
The good is in
Heaven where God
is. God will always guide
us to heaven on the right path.
The Bad...
The bad side is in
the burning fires
of Hell. It is where
the Devil and the
evil spirits are. If
we are really bad,
we might end up
If we do the right thing once in awhile and pray every single day,we are that much closer to being in heaven with God
Another way of being closer to God is to offer to the poor. Give them everything you have and when you are in heaven, you will have anything you can dream of
A peaceful, song
explaining how the
world should be.
The sacrament of Reconciliation can also called confession, Reconciliation or Penance.

Infomation from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacrament_of_Penance_%28Catholic_Church%29

If you have committed sins and want to be forgiven by God, you come to church and you tell the Preist about your sins. Don't be afraid to be honest with God. If you aren't honest, then God won't forgive you.
First, you kneel down face to face with the priest or behind a screen.
You make the sign of the cross
Be honest with the preist. He is like God. Tell him all that you have done and God will forgive you.
Here are some steps you'll need to know when you are confessing:
You then say: "Bless me Father for I have sinned. It has been about _____ (Tell Father how long it has been since your last confession) since my last confession."
One way of being closer to God is by confessing.
Examine your conscience and go through the Ten Commandments before you tell the Father about your sins
When you start confessing your sins, you must say how many times you have sinned or broke one of the Ten Commandments in each one that you confess.
When you are done, it is good to say: "for these and any sins I may have forgotten, I am truly sorry" to let the Priest know you are done
When you are finished, the Priest may give you advice or comments about your sins
He will then say some prayers of penance
After he is done, he will then invite you to say the Act of Contrition.
Next, he will say: ''I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit" As he says that, you will again make the sign of the cross
"Go in peace" As most priests would say after. Saying "thank you" would be a polite thing to say when you leave
I hope these steps are helpful when it comes to confession!
