"Nothing can separate us from the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus"
God had sent Jesus to forgive sins, but after his resurrection Jesus told the apostles, "‘As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, 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 20:21–23).
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a Sacrament of Healing.
Sin leaves ugly scars on the person who commits serious sin; it scars other people who are sinned agains; it scars the whole community. These scars are spiritual and can be emotional and psychological with even physical effects. Healing of that person remains incomplete without seeking the forgiveness of God. The Sacrament of Reconciliation or Confession wipes away our sin, brings us peace and repairs our relationship with God, with others and with ourselves. Jesus is the divine healer and working through the priest he heals us if we come to him confessing our sins, trying to be truly sorry for them, and willing to change with his grace. That is why confession can help us grow as persons.
