Grades 5 - 8
Sin & Forgiveness
Act of Contrition
Practice the Act of Contrition together:
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.
I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy.
The Two Greatest Commandments - To love God above all and to love our neighbors as ourselves - and the Ten Commandments are about calling us to living the life God has called us to live. Yet, sometimes we fail. This is were sin enters our lives. But after we sin, is there any hope? Yes! Watch both videos below to better learn what is meant by sin and how we can remedy it, especially with gift that is Reconciliation.
The "Read This" looks at how Jesus is the ultimate remedy for sin - our Divine Physician. It was also because of this desire to heal us that Jesus gave us the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Experience God's mercy and forgiveness as a family and go to Reconciliation. As the "Read This" puts it: make the "appointment".
St Teresa offers Reconciliation every Saturday at 9 AM in the Main Church.
