Transcript of The three Rites of Reconciliation

In most churches there is a reconciliation room in which the person's sins are forgiven. This room allows you to speak to a Priest freely. The Priest will begin with a short reading or a passage from the scripture.

The person will acknowledge their regretful sins, then the Priest will set the person prays and charitable acts to whom they have offended.

The person say the Act of Contrition and the Priest follows up with a prayer proclaming Gods forgiveness. The person thanks the priest and does any reflection then.

The Three Rites of Reconciliation
1. Individual Confession
Many parishes provide opportunities for people to use the sacrament of reconciliation as part of a communal celebration instead of individually.

The community gather and the celebration begins with an opening hymn, a greeting by the Priest and a prayer. He allows brief time of personal reflection after the homily.

Then each person confesses to a priest individually and receives absolution. The priest uses the same procedure as the first rite. The priest says a blessing and says ' Go in peace'.
The third rite of reconciliation is used in special circumstances where there is no opportunity for individual confession such as War or national emergency.

The Priest give a general absolution of sins after the community have reflected privately and say a prayer expressing their repentance.
