The Sacrament of Reconciliation or ‘confession’ is Jesus’ recognition that we are humans.
When we are baptized, our original sin is washed away and we receive the Grace of Christian Initiation. But Jesus knew that many would forget their Baptismal promises and may fall into sin.
Since His mercy is infinite, it is natural that He would provide a way to receive His Grace through the heartfelt and mindful confession of the sins, and a genuine want for forgiveness through penance.
