Transcript of The Sacrament Of Reconciliation

The Sacrament Of Reconciliation
1 What Is Reconciliation?
Reconciliation is the second sacrament of Initiation. It is when you confess your sins to the Priest for the first time after the first sacrament of Baptism. In this sacrament Christians are freed from sins committed after Baptism. It is like a renewal because Jesus knew that we would forget our promises made threw baptism and commit grave sins.
Since God's love is infinite, it seems that he would provide a second chance for those who might fall back into sin. That is what confession is for.

2 a) How Is Reconciliation Celebrated?
Reconciliation is celebrated by going to mass, entering a room with a priest or going into a booth where you cannot see the priest but not see them and confess all of the sins committed. Before you can confess your sins, you have to say,
"My God, I am sorry for all my sins, because they displease you, who are all good, and deserving of all my love. With your help, I will sin no more. Amen.
Bless me Father, for I have sinned, it has been (number of years) years since my last confession and these are my sins." After this you say all of your major sins first then save the minor sins for last.
3 a) The Symbol Of Reconciliation
A symbol of reconciliation is Keys. A single key or a pair of keys, usually crossed in the shape of an “X", is the most common symbol for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The symbol was with Jesus’ words to Peter, “I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 16:19a), by which Jesus imparted his authority to the Church, and his continuing statement, “Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Mt 16:19b), by which he established the Sacrament of Reconciliation and gave the Church the authority to forgive sins (see also Jn 20:23).
2 c) How Is The Community Involved In The Celebration Of Reconciliation?
2 b) How Does An Individual Prepare
For This Sacrament?
Confessing sins is not difficult, but it does require some preparation. First, it would be the best to pray to be in the presence of God. Praying before confessing sins would give us the feeling of God motivating us to say what we need to. And don't worry because the priest can't say anything you told them to anyone. We all sin, and the purpose of reconciliation is to confess everything we have done against the will of God, so we can start off clean again and not repeat our mistakes.
Let St. John (20:19-23) tell it:

Jesus came and stood in the midst and said to them, 'Peace be to you!' And when he had said this he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore rejoiced at the sight of the Lord. He therefore said to them again, 'Peace be to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.' When he had said this, he breathed upon them, and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit; whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.'

Let St. John (20:19-23):

Jesus came and stood in the midst and said to them, 'Peace be to you!' And when he had said this he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore rejoiced at the sight of the Lord. He therefore said to them again, 'Peace be to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.' When he had said this, he breathed upon them, and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit; whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.'

3 b) The sign of reconciliation
4. How Does Reconciliation connect to Jesus' Ministry?
In the Christian gospels, the ministry of Jesus begins with his baptism, following the Last Supper with his disciples. The Gospel of Luke (3:23) says that Jesus was "about 30 years of age" at the start of his ministry. he bible passage to the right shows a part of Jesus' life where it is connected to reconciliation.
A sign of reconciliation is a Raised Hand. During reconciliation, after the penitent says the Act of Contrition, the priests offers the Prayer of Absolution. It is a blessing that removes the person’s sins, and to do this the priest puts their right hand over the persons head.
Many Catholics go for the Sacrament of Reconciliation only twice in a year, during Advent and during Lent. This is how the christian community is involved in celebrating reconciliation.
