You're Doing Confession Wrong! - Catholicism in Focus - Breaking the Habit - Despite its popularity, the sacrament of confession is rarely practiced as the Church envisions it. Many use the phrase "bless me father for I have sinned," which is fine, but the actual Rite of Penance (1973) does not include these words at all. What does this rite include, and what did the framers have in mind?

The sacrament of Reconciliation is also known as Penance.  In the past it may also have been known as Confession.  In this sacrament, the priest, as the agent of God, forgives sins committed after Baptism, when the sinner is heartily sorry for them, sincerely confesses them, and is willing to make satisfaction for them.  By his death on the Cross, Jesus Christ redeemed man from sin and from the consequences of his sin, especially from the eternal death that is sin's due.  On the very day he rose from the dead, Jesus instituted this sacrament by which one's sins could be forgiven.

Fr. Mike Schmitz has said, "When we go to Confession we are not telling God something He doesn’t already know, and we’re not showing Him something He doesn’t already see. We are giving Him something He doesn’t already have: Your broken heart."

At Saint Kilian Parish, Reconciliation is scheduled on Saturday from 3:45 pm to 4:15 pm at Saint Kilian Church or by appointment with Father David at 262-673-14831 ext. 401.
