The sacrament of reconciliation catechisms

"Forgiveness of sins brings reconciliation with God but also with the church"

"Jesus insists on conversion of heart: reconciliation with one's brother before presenting an offering on the altar, love of enemies, and prayer for persecutors, prayer to the Father in secret, not heaping up empty phrases, prayerful forgiveness from the depths of the heart, purity of heart, and seeking the Kingdom before all else"

"Every form of social or cultural discrimination in fundamental personal rights on the grounds of sex, race, colour, social conditions, language or religion must be curbed and eradicated as incompatible with Gods design"

Christian duty towards the poor and those in need

"Paying unjust salaries, something that is not enough to live on, is stealing"

"An approach to business that makes the profit motive the only concern is immoral"

"A business that turns people into things to be bought and sold is immoral"

"Because of the evils and injustices that all war brings with it, we must do everything reasonably possible to avoid it"

"Respect for and development of human life require peace. Peace is not merely the absence of war, and it is not limited to maintaining a balance of powers between adversaries. Peace cannot be attained on earth without safeguarding the goods of persons, free communication among men, respect for the dignity of persons and peoples"
