Designed to help children aged 5 to 9 years learn about the celebration of the Rite of Penance. Ideal for parents and catechists.
"Dear children, in this activity book you will learn about the celebration of the Rite of Penance, sometimes called Confession or the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
You will learn to search your hearts, by thinking about Jesus' words and actions, and examining your conscience.
Each stage of the rite is explained: The priest's welcome; confessing your sins; saying sorry; sharing God's Word, your act of penance; receiving God's forgiveness.
There is great joy in being forgiven which will make you want to praise God and live more fully as Jesus wants us to live.
Lots of activities for children. Lots of helpful suggestions for parents and other educators.
