Another reason for confession is that it affords the penitent a means of repairing the offense to God that sin has caused. Every mortal sin is, in effect, an act of pride. When a person commits a sin he violates one of God’s ordinances. God, as it were, stands before the sinner and says: “You shall not do this evil; if you do you shall not enter into eternal life.”
