What are the parts of the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation? Although this sacrament is often referred to as “confession”, it is so much more than that. We first feel contrition in our hearts, a sorrow for our sin and determination not to sin again, then we confess our sins to a priest. After our confession and an Act of Contrition, we receive absolution of our sins and a penance to repair the damage of sin and protect us from sinning again in the future.
