Apostolic Letter Motu Proprio of Pope John Paul II On Certain Aspects of the Celebration of the Sacrament of Penance


Author: Pope John Paul II

"Through the centuries, the celebration of the sacrament of Penance has developed in different forms, but it has always kept the same basic structure: it necessarily entails not only the action of the minister - only a bishop or priest, who judges and absolves, tends and heals in the name of Christ - but also the actions of the penitent: contrition, confession and satisfaction." - From the Introduction
