Wednesday of the Nineteenth week in Ordinary Time

"Whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven"


Catechism of the Catholic Church
§ 1444, 1449, 1484

"Whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven"

In imparting to his apostles his own power to forgive sins the Lord also gives them the authority to reconcile sinners with the Church. This ecclesial dimension of their task is expressed most notably in Christ's solemn words to Simon Peter: "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." (Mt 16,19) "The office of binding and loosing which was given to Peter was also assigned to the college of the apostles united to its head (Mt 18,18; 28,16-20)” (Vatican II LG 22)…

The formula of absolution used in the Latin Church expresses the essential elements of this sacrament: the Father of mercies is the source of all forgiveness. He effects the reconciliation of sinners through the Passover of his Son and the gift of his Spirit, through the prayer and ministry of the Church: “God, the Father of mercies, through the death and the resurrection of his Son has reconciled the world to himself and sent the Holy Spirit among us for the forgiveness of sins; through the ministry of the Church may God give you pardon and peace, and I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…

Christ is at work in each of the sacraments. He personally addresses every sinner: "My son, your sins are forgiven." (Mk 2,5) He is the physician tending each one of the sick who need him to cure them. (cf. Mk 2,17) He raises them up and reintegrates them into fraternal communion. Personal confession is thus the form most expressive of reconciliation with God and with the Church.
