Examination of Conscience

An examination of conscience is a tool to help one prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. I highly encourage you to download the examination that best fits your state in life. On the examination is everything you will need to go to Reconciliation confession. The Act of Contrition is right there on the page. Feel free to bring any kind of Reconciliation guide into the confessional with you. Many Examination of Conscience are based off of the Ten Commandments, which is great. I have chosen, however, to build these around the concept of the three loves: 


Love of God ~ Love of Neighbor ~ Love of Self 


I have also added aspects of the virtuous life, and not simply the sinful life, so that you can have an idea of what you might be called to do instead.

The sins are distinguished by the italics.
