Those who approach this sacrament obtain pardon from the mercy of God 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, example, and prayer seeks their conversion.
(Vatican II, “Lumen Gentium”, no. 11).

Penance, Confessions, Reconciliation.
