Confession is a Sacrament of the Church. All of the Sacraments are an experience of God's love in a very real, profound, and personal way.
The source and goal of all the Sacraments are experiencing the Father's Love through Jesus in the Holy Spirit. In the Sacraments, The Holy Spirit makes present the Mystery of Christ. In a profoundly personal and tangible way, we experience God, for real, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
