Entering into the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Confession is not difficult. Yet, if we want to experience the sacrament in the most profound way, we must prepare by placing ourselves in the presence of God and praying for the wisdom, insight and humility to reflect honestly on our life.

Catholics seek healing and forgiveness through repentance and a resolve to change those parts of their lives that do not foster relationship with God and God's people. This reflection should involve searching one's thoughts, words and actions - an examination of conscience.

To inquire more about the Sacrament of Reconciliation, contact Kirsten Iaquinta at iaquintak@duq.edu.
