Review About Sin and Forgiveness While You Remember the Parable of the Return of the Prodigal Son.

The parable of the Return of the Prodigal Son is perhaps one of the most beautiful and memorable stories that our Lord told in the Gospels. It teaches many different things, including the power of love, and how true contrition can bring about reconciliation and restore hope into our lives. This simple sheet helps children to see the link between the parable, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the Act of Contrition prayer. By using graphic clues learners can easily reflect on the parable and the sacrament with the Think, Do and Pray prompts.

The five steps to a good confession are also reviewed in this resource.


The text of the prayer featured in this version is as follows.
Oh my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You.
I detest all my sins because of your just punishments.
But most of all because they offend you, my God,
who are all good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve with the help of Your grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.
