February Family of Faith: The Sacraments of Healing: Penance/Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick
Jesus came to bring healing for our body and our soul. It was his desire that through the ministry of the Church, spiritual and physical healing would continue to be available to all. In the Sacrament of Reconciliation our sins are forgiven and we are reconciled to God and His Church through confession and acts of penance. In these sacraments of healing, God continually reaches out to us, offering healing, forgiveness, and grace.
