Effects of the Sacrament of Penance:

Effects of the Sacrament of Penance:

“The effects of the sacrament of penance worthily received are:
First— the restoration or increase of sanctifying grace
Second— the forgiveness of sins
Third— the remission of the eternal punishment, if necessary,
and also of part, at least, of the temporal punishment, due to our
sins
Fourth— the help to avoid sin in future
Fifth— the restoration of the merits of our good works if they
have been lost by mortal sin.”
