LEARNING FOCUS 4: Penitential Rite 1 and 2.
There are two different ways of celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Rite 1 and Rite 2.
Rite means ritual or ceremony, a way of doing things.
In Rite 1, individuals will make their Confession to the priest. Before they do that, they will have prayed and thought carefully about their life, have contrition and want to make a new start. They will tell the priest their sins and listen carefully to his advice.
Sometimes Rite 2 of the Sacrament of Reconciliation is used. This often happens in Advent and Lent when people gather together to prepare for the feasts of Christmas or Easter. In Rite 2, a number of people come together for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, often with a few priests who have come from neighbouring parishes. There is a service of prayers and readings, which help people to prepare. They are then invited to make a personal confession to one of the priests available. Sometimes schools will have a Penitential Service with the opportunity for confession, Rite 2. Whatever a person talks to the priest about is in absolute confidence. They can feel that they are talking to God alone. When the confessions are finished, the priest invites everyone to thank and praise God for his mercy and forgiveness.
- If you have ever been to a service where many people have prepared for the Sacrament of Reconciliation together, what has been your experience? What did you find helpful?
- How do you feel when you saw adults going to confession to the different priests?
- Why do you think it helpful to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
- What is hard about it and what is good?
- Which Rite – 1 or 2 do you like best and why?
Think about all the things you have done wrong and would like to say sorry for. Write these down on a sheet of paper along with the reason why you are sorry. Once you have finished fold up the paper. Use scissors to cut up the paper and say I am sorry for what I have done wrong.
Now think of positive ways to make sure you will not do the same actions again. Try to refer back to these when times get hard or you feel like you will commit the same actions again.

Following protests campaigning for Black Lives Matter, demonstrators in Bristol pulled down a
statue of a former slave trader, Edward Colston, and threw it into the harbour. It is likely that the statue will now be placed in a museum. Many other famous statues have been in question in other parts of the UK, with issues regarding what they represent and if they should be given prominent positions in towns and cities.
Our question this week is:
Who do we think deserves a statue to celebrate their achievements?
Keep practicing daily your timetables. I can keep track on who is and isn't participating so make sure you join in!
