Confession (Penance) Cards

The journey through life for a Catholic is marked by special moments of God’s blessing called Sacraments. There are seven Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Confession, Anointing, Marriage, Holy Orders. The sacrament of Confession offers the opportunity for a person to speak in confidence with a priest and share some detail of how they feel they may have failed in their living as a Christian. The priest then suggests a 'penance' that can be done to atone for the confessed failing, and this could an action or, most commonly, a series of prayers. The session ends with the priest saying the 'Prayer of Absolution' which formerly reconciles the believer with God ('Reconciliation'). Traditionally the Sacrament of Confession precedes a child's 'First Holy Communion', requiring children as young as seven or eight to assess what they might have done that is wrong.  Watermead's original 'Confession' card was designed with this age group in mind, hoping its presentation would gently encourage and reassure a child on the occasion of their experiencing the sacrament for the first time.
