Sin and Forgiveness

Pope in General Audience: Every two weeks I go to Confession
- - Published on Nov 20, 2013

The spiritual effects of the sacrament of Penance are:

- reconciliation with God by which the penitent recovers grace
- reconciliation with the Church
 - remission of the eternal punishment incurred by mortal sins
- remission, at least in part, of temporal punishments resulting from sin
- peace and serenity of conscience, and spiritual consolation
- an increase of spiritual strength for the Christian battle
Catechism of the Catholic Church, para. 1496


"When we seek forgiveness in a human relationship, the resolution of guilt can strengthen the love in that relationship,” Lynch said. “Likewise, when we ask for forgiveness of sins in confession, we have an opportunity to restore our relationship with the Father as a child of God.” - Archdioces of Denver
