We have found that sometimes it can be difficult to explain the sacrament of reconciliation to young people as they often ask questions like: "why do I have to tell a priest my sins when I can just ask God for forgiveness myself?"

We have attempted to put together an explanation which will hopefully answer all those questions. We have used several quotes from the Youth Catechism. 

You can download it here. We hope you find it useful!
