The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a common name used for the Sacrament of Confession. Whereas “Confession” stresses the action of the believer in the sacrament, “Reconciliation” stresses the action of God, whose love for us surpasses anything we may have done. God is not out to catch us in our sin but is intent on reaching out and hanging on to us in spite of our sin. Reconciliation (and the new Rite is careful to point this out) is not just a matter of getting rid of sin. Nor is its dominant concern what we, the penitents, do. The important point is what God does in, with and through us.
