CONFESSION brings HEALING

“…’Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take up your bed, and walk.'”
(Jesus, in Mark 2:10)

“…confession…allows us to be healed by Christ and to progress in the life of the Spirit.”
(Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 306)

“When I go to confession, it is in order to be healed, to heal my soul, to heal my heart and to be healed of some wrongdoing. The biblical icon which best expresses them in their deep bond is the episode of the forgiving and healing of the paralytic, where the Lord Jesus is revealed at the same time as the physician of souls and of bodies.”
(Pope Francis, General Audience 19-February-2014)

Steps in making a good Confession:

  1. Examination of conscience
  2. Contrition/sorrow for sins
  3. Firm purpose of amendment/conversion
  4. Confession of sins to the priest
  5. Do penance
  6. Express gratitude to our Lord (Luke 17:12-19)
