Penance

Sometimes called the Sacrament of Reconciliation. That is what Mr. Mel Gibson has probably done or will be doing so considering his strong Catholic faith. I love all the sacraments that are available to me and penance is certainly one that I cannot do without. When Father says "I absolve you of all your sins", it feels as if I've just been showered with grace as my sins fall away from my stained soul.
"Penance is a sacrament of the New Law instituted by Christ in which forgiveness of sins committed after baptism is granted through the priest's absolution to those who with true sorrow confess their sins and promise to satisfy for the same."
I wish everyone a wonderful Sunday evening. To learn more about the Sacrament of Penance click here.

The Passion of the Christ saved many souls. I'm sure that, like all of us, Mel Gibson just gave in to temptation and sinned. I think he's a great person though, and I can almost gurantee he's already been in the Confessional for this incident.

I love Confession! I'm there so often, but it's so amazing that God's forgiveness is available to anyone that wishes to repent.

Tito,

It is Christ who absolves us of our sins during confession - the priest is just his visible instrument.

I LOVE the sacrament as well. If only all Catholics truly grasped the necessity of reconciliation.

Moneybags,

I agree wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, there are many already passing inuendo and gossip as facts.

There's nothing like a good confession. After Absolution, I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted from me. One time I told the priest, "Now I can breathe!" That's just how it feels.
