Gentle Examination of Conscience for Children Handout
Gentle Examination of Conscience Helps Form Moral Character and Prepares Children to Receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Help children prepare for the sacrament of Reconciliation with this two-page printable examination of conscience, which links sins to the commandments which they break.
A nice feature of this examination is that it provides positive as well as negative examples of behavior. We know that the Bible presents the commandments as rules. But in this handout, we list the rules and how to keep them or possibly break them all in one. It helps children recognize and link the importance of the Ten Commandments to their daily lives.
Feel free to discuss and add other examples that may fit the needs of your CCD class or family.
Use this two-page handout to help first-time penitents prepare for their First Reconciliation or slightly older learners prepare for Confession. Reading this Gentle Examination of Conscience for Children Handout is also a great way to review the Ten Commandments for individual learners or follow along in a classroom discussion.
