The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a sacrament of healing because it reconciles us with God through his merciful love and forgiveness of our sin. You may see the priest face-to-face or speak through a screen. You may receive the sacrament in church at scheduled times or by appointment with a priest either in church or in the priest’s office.
Any baptized Catholic may receive this sacrament. There is no limit to the number of times we can be forgiven for our sins. Catholics are encouraged to receive this sacrament at least once a year between the start of Lent and Pentecost.
Catholics who have committed serious sin are not to receive the Eucharist until their serious sin has been forgiven in the sacrament of Reconciliation.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained. ( John 20:23)
