The penitent may kneel on the kneeler or sit in a chair facing the priest not shown In Catholic teaching, the Sacrament of Penance is the method of the Church by which individual men and women confess sins committed after baptism and have them absolved by God through the administration of a Priest.
The Catholic rite, obligatory at least once a year for serious sin, is usually conducted within a confessional box, booth or reconciliation room.
This sacrament is known by many names, including penancereconciliation and confession Catechism of the Catholic ChurchSections While official Church publications usually refer to the sacrament as "Penance", "Reconciliation" or "Penance and Reconciliation", many laypeople continue to use the term "Confession" in reference to the Sacrament.
For the Catholic Church, the intent of this sacrament is to provide healing for the soul as well as to regain the grace of Godlost by sin. A perfect act of contrition, wherein the penitent expresses sorrow for having offended God and not out of fear of eternal punishment, even outside of confession removes the eternal punishment associated with mortal sin but a Catholic is obliged to confess his or her mortal sins at the earliest opportunity.
The Catholic Church teaches that sacramental confession requires three "acts" on the part of the penitent: It has been [time period] since my last confession.
The sinner may also confess venial sins ; this is especially recommended if the penitent has no mortal sins to confess.
According to the Catechism, "without being strictly necessary, confession of everyday faults venial sins is nevertheless strongly recommended by the Church.
Indeed the regular confession of our venial sins helps us form our conscience, fight against evil tendencies, let ourselves be healed by Christ and progress in the life of the Spirit. By receiving more frequently through this sacrament the gift of the Father's Mercy, we are spurred to be merciful as He is merciful".
As a safeguard not to become something like "subconsciously inadvertent" to avoid saying some sins, these must be confessed in the next confession if the penitent then remembers them; or generally in the first confession in which they are remembered.
Even then it is allowed, however allowed, and even, except for certain devotional purposes, generally sensible to concentrate in one's examination of conscience on the time since the last Confession. In general, Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Christians choose an individual to trust as his or her spiritual guide.
In most cases this is the parish priest, but may be a starets Eldera monastic who is well known for his or her advancement in the spiritual life.
This person is often referred to as one's "spiritual father". Once chosen, the individual turns to their spiritual guide for advice on their spiritual development, confessing sins, and asking advice.
Orthodox Christians tend to confess only to this individual and the closeness created by this bond makes the spiritual guide the most qualified in dealing with the person, so much so that no one can override what a spiritual guide tells his charges.
What is confessed to one's spiritual guide is protected by the same seal as would be any priest hearing a confession. Only an ordained priest may pronounce the absolution. On the analogion is placed a Gospel Book and a blessing cross.
The confession often takes place before an icon of Jesus Christ. Orthodox understand that the confession is not made to the priest, but to Christ, and the priest stands only as witness and guide. Before confessing, the penitent venerates the Gospel Book and cross, and places the thumb and first two fingers of his right hand on the feet of Christ as he is depicted on the cross.
The confessor will often read an admonition warning the penitent to make a full confession, holding nothing back. For this reason, especially in the Russian Orthodox Churchthe pectoral cross that the priest wears at all times will often have the Icon of Christ "Not Made by Hands" inscribed on it so that such an icon will be available to penitents who are experiencing imminent death or life-threatening danger in the presence of a priest but away from a church.
It is not uncommon for a person to confess his sins to his spiritual guide on a regular basis but only seek out the priest to read the prayer before receiving Holy Communion. In the Eastern Churchesclergy often make their confession in the sanctuary. A bishop, priest, or deacon will confess at the Holy Table Altar where the Gospel Book and blessing cross are normally kept.
He confesses in the same manner as a layman, except that when a priest hears a bishop's confession, the priest kneels. There are many different practices regarding how often Orthodox Christians should go to confession. Some Patriarchates advise confession before each reception of Holy Communionothers advise confessing during each of the four fasting periods Great LentNativity FastApostles' Fast and Dormition Fastand there are many additional variants.
In some of the monasteries on Mount Athosthe monks will confess their sins daily. Eastern Christians will also practice a form of general confession, or manifest contritionreferred to as the rite of "Mutual Forgiveness". The rite involves an exchange between the priest and the congregation or, in monasteries, between the superior and the brotherhood.
The priest will make a prostration before all and ask their forgiveness for sins committed in act, word, deed, and thought.Your mornings will never be the same again!
