Reconciliation

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23

“Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17-20

Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion. (§1422, CCC)

It is sin that distances us on our relationship with God. Through the sacrament of reconciliation, we are cleansed of our sins and reunited with our Lord Jesus Christ.
