Christ instituted the Sacrament of Penance for all sinful members of His Church: above all for those who, since Baptism, have fallen into grave sin, and have thus lost their baptismal grace and wounded ecclesial communion.  It is to them that the Sacrament of Penance offers a new possibility to convert and to recover the grace of justification.  The Fathers of the Church present this Sacrament as “the second plank [of salvation] after the shipwreck which is the loss of grace.”

– from the Catechism of the Catholic Church  #1446
