Healing was central to the ministry of Jesus. The church offers two wonderful Sacraments to restore us to health in our relationship with God: the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also called Penance, Confession, or the Sacrament of Forgiveness) is the grace-filled event at which we recognize our sinfulness, receive absolution, and celebrate the freedom of being right with God once again.
God desires us to be healthy, to experience wholeness in mind, body, and spirit. When any part of us experiences brokenness, we may seek this Sacrament for a reminder that God is with us always and knows what healing we need.
