The confession of sins

The confession of sins (the confession),

The confession, so much as from a simple human point of view, releases us and facilitates our reconciliation with each other. Through confession, the sinner faces the faults of which it was guilty; it assumes the responsibility for them and, by this, it begins anew with the others.
If it is a believer, it opens up to its Creator via the confessor. It finds communion with the Saints and the community of the faithful.

The Most High will assess our sins; if one shows oneself, one joins with the Creator. The human and the sinner are, so to speak, two realities: when you hear about the man, it is the Most High which made it; when you hear about the sinner, it is humanity which is the source, since the children of Creation discovered the apathy.
Undo what you did against human nature, so that Our Creator saves the soul which It made… When you begin to detest what you have done, it is that there is no good in what you have done, and the evil is the absence of good.
The beginning of good works is the confession of bad works. You tell the truth and you come to the Light.

Penitence,

Many of our sins cause a wrong to our fellow man. It is necessary, if possible, to make reparations (for example to restore things stolen, to rehabilitate the reputation of one which was slandered, and to compensate for injuries). Simple justice requires this. But, moreover, the sin wounds and weakens the sinner himself, as well as its relationship to Creation, and disconnects it from the Most High. The absolution removes the sin, but it does not cure all the disorders that the sin caused.
Relieved of the sin, the sinner must still recover full spiritual health. It must thus do something more to repair its sins: it must “satisfy” in suitable manner or “expiate” its sins. This satisfaction is also called “penitence.”

The penitence that the confessor imposes must take account of the personal situation of the penitent and must seek its spiritual good. It must fit as much as possible with the gravity and the nature of the sins committed. It can consist of prayer, an offering, works of mercy, the service of a neighbor, voluntary deprivations, sacrifices, and especially in the patient acceptance of the punishment.
One agrees to suffer because one caused suffering, but it should not be forgotten that to suffer is not a virtue in itself.
The suffering as penitence has meaning only if it is used to recall to us how much, if it is painful for us, it was for that which had been our victim.
Oane said “do not seek God in the suffering, but remember you have suffered for gain not for waste.”

Absolution or reconciliation.

The faithful which recognizes and confesses its faults, which repairs the wrongs it caused, which recognizes that they are sources of evil and forswears it with all its heart, that one will be able to receive the absolution of a confessor and the Most High will not reproach him for the acts truly absolved. On the other hand, if the sinner cheated with itself to obtain forgiveness it will be judged doubly because it blasphemes a sacrament.

The absolution of the Church releases the soul of the weight of the sin, but does not erase the temporality of this one that it is known and outside of the law of men.
Thus the spouse that commits adultery can be discharged temporally from its fault only if the one towards which it committed it forgives it too. Thus the criminal can not grasp release from his responsibilities towards justice as long as justice does not state to have finished with him.

On the other hand, no power exists to be prosecuted after having confessed its faults on the sole fact of the confession, because if it is made in private the confessor is held to secrecy and is bound by the Most High to keep it secret up to and after death.
