Sacrament of Reconciliation: Healers of Souls

A very unique and a beautiful aspect of Catholicism is the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Jesus Christ created and established the Sacrament of Confession to help us sinners receive forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and with the Church. The Sacrament of Confession can be seen as a way of cleansing our soul and washing away the sins that has made our soul heavy and dark. This is the way the God created for us to help us find the path that leads to him. A step in faith, the Catholic Church welcomes you back and calls you to participate in this wonderful sacrament of healing. 


Helps You Know Thyself Better

St. Augustine and many other doctors of the Church talk about how important knowing ourselves is. Once we come to know ourselves better, we would see how fallen we are and how lacking we are from God’s grace.


Bringer of Peace

Having guilt from all the sins we commit would make us feel heavy-hearted and confused on what to do next. Eventually, you would lose your peace. Once you heard the forgiving words of God through Confession, all the burdens, all the chains that has been chaining you down would vanish and peace would return to your heart.
