Catechism # 1423 - 1479 # 2838 - 2845 Scripture Matthew 18:18 Mark 1:15 Mark 2:5 Mark 2:10 Key Concepts • We may get lost or turned around in our journey toward heaven. We may even find ourselves going backward and getting further from the finish line. Through all of the difficulties, however, we are called to keep trying and working on our relationship with Jesus. (CCC 1415-1429) • Our sins are the choices we make that go against the will of God. They are offenses against God that rupture our relationship with Him and the Church. (CCC 1440) • The Sacrament of Reconciliation repairs any damage that has been caused by our sins. It brings us back into relationship with Jesus and all other members of the Church.
