RECONCILIATION

 

                                                                                 Reconciliation

 

 

In preparation for First Reconciliation, the children begin to recognise their essential goodness and rejoice in it. They can be at times caring, kind, helpful, honest.  They begin to appreciate their interrelatedness and become aware of their failures.  They begin to see the need to say sorry for times when they have hurt others.  We help them to reflect on the times when they have become disconnected from their true selves, and from the goodness around them and from God who loves us despite our failings.

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Sorrow

 

O my God, I thank you for loving me.

 

I am sorry for all my sins,

 

for not loving others and not loving you.

 

Help me to live like Jesus

 

and not sin again. Amen.    

  

 

     Prayer for Forgiveness

 

     O my God, help to remember the times

 

     when I didn’t live as Jesus asked me to.

 

     Help me to be sorry and to try again.  Amen

 

 

 

 

Prayer after Forgiveness

 

O my God thank you for forgiving me.

 

Help me to love others.

 

Help me to live as Jesus asked me to. Amen
