"On the evening of that day, the first day of the week," Jesus showed Himself to His apostles. "He breathed on them and said to them: 'Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.'" (John 20: 19, 22-23)


The forgiveness of sins, committed after Baptism, is offered to us by a loving and merciful God through a sacrament called by a number of names: the sacrament of conversion, confession, penance or reconciliation. Each name identifies a grace and gift that flows to those who in humility confess their wrongdoings before God.


When we sin, we wound our relationship to God; we diminish our own human integrity as a child of God, and we undermine the spiritual well-being of the Church. Therefore, it is necessary for us to seek the mercy and forgiveness of a God who loves us deeply and wants to restore us to His love and the love of the community of faith, the Church.
