Examination of Conscience

Offer an Act of Contrition

When the Sacrament of Confession is not readily available, we are still called to examine our consciences before the Lord and ask His forgiveness for any sins. The Church teaches that among the penitent’s acts, contrition holds the first place. Perfect contrition—that arising from love of God or charity—can “obtain forgiveness of mortal sins if it includes the firm resolution to have recourse to sacramental confession as soon as possible” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1452).

Why do Catholics confess their sins to a priest? Fr. John Muir takes on the question.
