The whole power of the sacrament of Penance consists in restoring us to God's grace and joining us with him an intimate friendship.
(Excerpted from the Catechism of the Catholic Church)

The sacrament of Penance is a whole consisting in three actions of the penitent and the priest's absolution. The penitent acts are repentance, confession or disclosure of sins to te priest, and the intention to make reparation and do works of reparation.  (Excerpted from the Catechism of the Catholic Church)

Act of Contrition
Prayer of the Penitent

My God,

I am sorry for my sins with all
my heart.
In choosing to do wrong
and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you
whom I should love above
all things.
I firmly intend, with your help,
to do penance,
to sin no more,
and to avoid whatever leads me
to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered
and died for us.
In his name, my God, have mercy.
