Sacrament of Reconciliation during Lenten Journey

In the midst of our Lenten journey, many have asked about the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confessions). Given that our churches are closed, and a stay-in-place order is in effect, individual confessions are currently not possible. Virtual or phone confessions are not permissible, nor drive-thru confessions. In a statement the Archdiocese noted, “Despite the good intentions around such novelty, we must attend to our underlying theological tradition of the sacrament, as we support the stay-at-home order and its intended purpose – to keep people safe in their homes at this time.”

However, when we are conscious of committing sin, even mortal sin, and do not have access to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the Church invites us to make an act of perfect contrition, that is, of sorrow for sin, which “arises from a love by which God is loved above all else.” An act of perfect contrition “obtains forgiveness of mortal sins if it includes the firm resolution to have recourse to sacramental confession as soon as possible” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1452). You can be assured that your sins are forgiven if you make an act of perfect contrition (using the Act of Contrition below) with a firm resolve to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation after the shelter-in-place order is lifted.

ACT OF CONTRITIONOh my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishment, but most of all, because they offend thee, My God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

AN ACT OF PREFECT CONTRITION DISPOSES OUR SOUL FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNIONMy Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. AMEN!CLICK HERE
