Penance comprises four distinct parts:
•Contrition means that we are sorry for our sins, and we intend to try to do better.
•Confession is the act of stating our sins to a priest. It is always required with mortal sins, but it is also a good and pious practice with venial sins.
•Satisfaction or penance consists of prayers or particular actions the priest assigns to us to show our sorrow, and to make some amends for our actions.
•Absolution – the words Jesus Christ speaks to us, through the priest – freeing us from our sins.
The confessor assigned me to Pray for Priests as Satisfaction of my last confession. I reasoned to pray for generous vocations, because priests are generally surrounded by Grace for continuous Spiritual Growth.
It is not fully true, the Holy Spirit revealed me as He inspired this article. The final, fierce battle between Christ and Satan is fast approaching with the imminent debut of The Antichrist, and Satan has a master plan to attack the Roman Catholic Church:
•To apostatize Lukewarm Catholics
•To tempt Clergymen
Brethren, Pray for priestly loyalty, because Satan intends to alienate clergymen to hurt the faithful. We recommend Prayer for Priests.
