Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confessions. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in confession.
– St. Isidore of Seville
Church law requires that before a Sacrament is administered, the priest must have proof of Baptism. Mary Our Queen requires proper proof before a child is able to celebrate the sacraments
Church law requires that before a child receives the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Penance) the child must have reached the age of reason: at least 8 years of age.
There should be at least three months separation between the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist.
