LESSON SEVENTEENTH: ON THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE
189. Q. How do you know that the priest has the power of absolving from the sins committed after Baptism?
A. I know that the priest has the power of absolving from the sins committed after Baptism, because Jesus Christ granted that power to the priests of His Church when He said: "Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; whose sins you shall retain, they are retained."
192. Q. What is the examination of conscience?
193. Q. How can we make a good examination of conscience?

194. Q. What should we do before beginning the examination of conscience?
