TOPIC Reconciliation


LEARNING FOCUS 5: The Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Look at Church’s Story 2 pages 46-47 and explain that it is a good idea at the end of each day, to think over what has happened during the day, to thank God for all the good and lovely things that have happened and to remember if there have been times when we have not been very kind or loving.  Adults call this an examination of conscience.  Your conscience is the sense of right and wrong that is inside you and helps you to follow God’s rules.

Look at Church’s Story 2 pages 48-49.  There is a Sacrament, a sign of God’s love, that helps Catholics, to examine or look at their consciences and ask for God’s forgiveness.  It is called the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  You think of the sins you are sorry about, the things you have done wrong on purpose.  You ask God to forgive you, and tell the priest, who won’t tell anyone else.  The priest tells you your sins are forgiven in Jesus’ name and asks you to make up for them by being kind or by saying a prayer.


Talk about what is happening in the picture from Church’s Story 2 page 48.  What is the priest saying?  What do you think the boy is saying?

Can you complete the 3 steps to reconciliation e.g.

  • I have upset or hurt…  Mary

because I… took her doll

  • I am sorry, I say sorry, I am forgiven.
  • I can make up by…  sharing my toys. I will try not to do it again.


Can I use the picture on page 48 and add speech bubbles to it, suggest something the boy is sorry for and how the priest replies.
