"Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offence committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labours for their conversion." (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1422)
The forgiveness of sins committed after Baptism is conferred by a particular sacrament by the name of confession, penance, or reconciliation. It is here that 'Jesus waits in love for you.'
"Be courageous and go to confession" - Pope Francis
