Our Savior Jesus Christ, when he gave to his apostles and their successors power to forgive sins, instituted in His Church the sacrament of penance. Thus the faithful who fall into sin after baptism may be reconciled with God and renewed in grace. In the sacrament of penance the faithful obtain from the mercy of God pardon for their sins against him; at the same time they are reconciled with the Church which they wounded by their sins and which works for their conversion by charity, example, and prayer.
