In the practice of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, four acts of the penitent are required:
- Sorrow for sins committed
- A resolution or firm purpose of amendment,
- The sincere confession of sins.
- Satisfaction or sacramental penance.
An examination of conscience should precede the reception of the Sacrament. It should be done in light of the Word of God. As an aid in the examination of conscience, the Catechism of the Catholic Church recommends the Sermon on the Mount and the Apostolic teachings, e.g. those found in the 12th to 15th chapters of the Epistle to the Romans (CCC 1454).
At Saint Lucy’s Reconciliation is Saturday 4:00 – 4:30 p.m. or Anytime by request.
