Tears of Joy and Fruit of Confession

Tears of Joy and Fruit of Confession

PONTIANAK, Gtpministries.org – I have been doing this confession regularly starting in 2021. Since then, I realized that there were so many struggles going on in my life, giving me the courage to start again after being absent from confession for so many years.

On Tuesday, March 28 2023 before entering Easter week, I went to Church to confess my sins and receive the sacrament of Penance. I came with sins that still stuck to me like worn, unwashed clothes. While waiting in line, I remembered all the sins I had committed. When it was my turn, I entered the confession room where it was just me and a priest who would listen and give me the sacrament of Penance.

During confession, my tears suddenly burst because I remembered how bad I was that my voice became lost and unclear. But I tried to organize my speech so that the Pastor could hear it clearly. After that, I was given advice and given forgiveness with the sacrament of Penance by the Pastor. God gave me relief for the forgiveness I received. I felt born again, renewed by the sacraments I had received.

The tears I felt were so warm, even though they were sobbing like they wouldn’t stop soon. I then entered the church, praying to regret all my mistakes. There was a feeling of emotion, God’s love for me was so good, that He forgave all my sins.

After praying, I felt the burden on my shoulders was reduced and I had new hope to become a better person than before. With this sacrament of Reconciliation, I am strengthened again.

Sacrament of Healing

The Sacrament of Penance or Reconciliation is one of the two sacraments of healing (CCC 1423-1424). This sacrament is a sacrament of spiritual healing for sins. Sin is an act that violates the law of love for God and others. Every human being must commit sin, which is done consciously so that it can harm other people and even himself and can damage his relationship with God. Relations with others are also damaged.

The Catholic Church opens up space for people who want to confess their sins in the confession room. People are invited to reflect on themselves and renew their minds by confessing their sins.

For some people, confessing their sins is the most feared thing, firstly because they are ashamed of the sin they have committed. Second, feeling unworthy of forgiveness. Third, people don’t want to know about their sins other than themselves, and there are many other reasons why people don’t want or are reluctant to come to the confession room. There are even those who haven’t confessed their sins at all in a year or have never done so.

However, there are also people who casually come to the confession room with a list of sins they have committed because it is their obligation. Even though by confessing our sins we remember the bad past, at least we can be healed and reborn as new people and better prepared to improve our lives in a better direction.

The Sacrament of Penance is not just a matter of regret and tears, but rather “metanoia” or a change of heart in our entire attitude towards life. We are asked to be aware and have good intentions and the efforts of repentance that we make. God always accepts everyone who wants to repent.

I Forgive Him Too

2 Corinthians 2:10 “For whose trespasses you forgive, I also forgive them. Because if I forgive, – if there is anything I should forgive -, then I do it because of you in the presence of Christ,” continued in Colossians 2:13 “You too, although you were dead in your transgressions and because you were not outwardly circumcised, have been made alive God is with Him, after He forgives all our transgressions”, in this verse it is clear that God forgives our sins.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also found in James 5:16 “Confess your sins to one another”. We just know that James 5:13-16 is the basis of the Sacrament of Penance and the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.
