Asked by Ella

Explain two reasons why the sacrament of reconciliation is important for catholics today. refer to scriptures and religious teachings?

The sacrament of reconciliation is more commonly known as the sacrament of confession. Confession is an essential part of Catholicism and carries a substantial amount of importance for Catholics. One importance is that it allows Catholics to truly repent for their sins and receive God's forgiveness. A second importance is that it allows individuals to regularly reflect on their behaviour, right any wrongs they have committed and understand that the priest can also forgive through the power given to them through the act of Apostolic Tradition - the priest is seen as an agent of God. This stems from Jesus passing the right to forgive to his apostles at the Last Supper, this is presented in John 20:19-23.
