In the life of the Christian, there are privileged moments when we meet the Lord, such as the Sunday Mass and the participation in the other sacraments. This pamphlet will help you to prepare in the most meaningful way to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Confession) through an examination of conscience. Receiving forgiveness in this sacrament is a real and tangible way to experience God's power and love. God shows us His power in the forgiveness of sins. An examination of conscience helps us to reorient our life toward God, who is love, and to correct actions, habits, attitudes and motives that are contrary to the Gospel.
