“Jesus came and stood in the midst” of His apostles. “He breathed on them, and said to them: Receive the Holy Spirit. WPenancehose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.” —John 20:19, 22-23

“Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” —from the Lord’s Prayer

The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God’s unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.
