Sacrament of Reconciliation
Start by saying the sign of the cross with the priest.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Bless me father, for I have sinned. It has been_____ weeks/ months / years, since my last confession.
Tell the priest all the things you are sorry for doing wrong.
The priest will talk to you about being sorry and making up for what you have done.
Now we say sorry to God by saying a special prayer called the Act of Contrition.
O my God, because you are so good.
I am very sorry that I have sinned against you,
And by the help of your Grace,
I will not sin again. Amen.
The priest might ask you to say some prayers once you have left confession, this is called penance. Say these quietly after you have left.
The priest will now give you a special blessing called ABSOLUTION which means God has forgiven you and loves you very much.
