In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the encounter of the penitent with the mercy of God is one of the most transforming moments in the spiritual life of a Catholic. The ritual itself has changed throughout history, but the purpose of the sacrament has remained the same: to seek the forgiveness of the Lord and to renew one’s efforts to live as a faithful and loving disciple of Jesus Christ. This resource provides pastoral insights for celebrating individual confession, communal Reconciliation services, and non-sacramental penance services with attention given to liturgical ministries, liturgical environment, and evangelization. As part of the Preparing Parish Worship™ series, this book includes:

  • Theological reflections on the reconciling love of God
  • A historical overview of the development of the Rite of Penance
  • A walk-through of the Rite of Penance
  • Answers to frequently asked questions
  • Assistance with best liturgical practices
  • Inspirational and informative quotations from Scripture and Church documents
