Ispovijed / Confession
Ispovijediti se možete prije svake svete mise.
Da bi se dobro i plodonosno ispovjedili potrebno je slijedeće:
– Ispitati savjest
– Iskreno se pokajati za grijehe
– čvrsto odlučiti da više nećemo griješiti
– iskreno ispovjediti sve grijehe
– izvršiti zadanu pokoru
Confessions can be done daily and Sundays before masses.
Through the sacrament of Reconciliation or Confession, God, through the priest, forgives all sins we confess sincerely. We have three names for this sacrament: the sacrament of reconciliation – we are reconciled with God, with people and with ourselves; the sacrament of confession – we confess our sins before a priest, a minister of the Church; the sacrament of penance – we perform penance for the sins we have committed. For the sacrament to be complete, all three meanings of the sacrament must be included.
Confession is an irreplaceable purification of the soul and spiritual peace by which man’s sins are forgiven, and thus he is strengthened in the fight against sin, gives him spiritual freedom, strengthens faith, encourages inner change and acts of charity.
In order to confess well and fruitfully, the following is required:
– examine conscience
– sincerely repent of sins
– firmly decide that we will not sin again
– sincerely confess all sins
– perform the given penance
