******************************************

Explain how our sins can be forgiven. First, sins are forgiven the way Christ intended. Second, by confessing to a priest, the person learns a lesson in humility, which is avoided when one confesses only through private prayer. Third and foremost, the Christian receives sacramental graces the other one doesn't get; through the sacrament of penance sins are forgiven and graces are obtained. Fourth, the Christian is assured that his sins are forgiven; he does not have to rely on a subjective "feeling." Lastly, he can also obtain sound advice on avoiding sin in the future.
