Examination of Conscience

Before celebrating the Sacrament of Confession, one should prepare themselves with an examination of conscience.  This is a “prayerful self-reflection on our words and deeds in the light of the Gospel to determine how we may have sinned against God”  (The Catechism of the Catholic Church, Glossary). 

You can view examples here of Examinations of Conscience that can aid you as you prepare for the Sacrament.
