**The Sacrament of Reconciliation the sacrament by which our relationship with God and the Church is strengthened or restored and our sins are forgiven; celebrates God's forgiveness.
A gift from God that helps us make decisions and to judge our decisions and actions Conscience
Examination of Conscience when we determine whether the choices we have made showed love for God, ourselves and others. We ask ourselves whether we have sinned, either by doing something we know is against God's law or by not doing something that god's law calls us to do.
Some examples of questions you should ask when examining your conscience Do I make anyone or anything more important to me than God? do I show obedience to God by my obedience to my parents and teachers? Have I hurt others by my words and actions? Have I lied or cheated?
How often should we examine our conscience? Daily

Examples of a penance a prayer, the completion of a work of mercy or an act of service.
Name the two ways the church celebrates Penance One way, or rite, is used when an individual meets with a priest for the celebration. The other rite is used when a group gathers to celebrate the sacrament with one or more priests.
How often does the Church require us to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation? At least once a year if we have committed a serious sin.
Seal of Confession Only a priest can hear our confession and forgive our sins. The priest can never , for any reason whatsoever, tell anyone what we have confessed. He is bound to the secrecy of the sacrament. the secrecy is called the seal of confession.
Name some of the benefits of the Sacrament of Penance helps us to focus our lives on God and his loving and just ways, helps us to reconcile with others in our daily lives and it directs us to think and act with fairness, to stand up for what is right and to work for peace and justice in the world.
