In fact there are 4 sometimes 5 elements to sacramental confession in the Catholic Church. These mirror closely what we find in the story of the Prodigal Son in the Gospel of Luke 15.

The son left his Father's house and went into a far country. This is going away from God. Then he descended to the level of pigs. This is losing his Christian and human dignity through sin.

He comes to his senses: Contrition

He says: I will say to my Father, "Father I have sinned against heaven and against you". Notice the Father lets him 'confess' his sins, not for the Father's sake, but for his son's sake.

The Father forgives his son:

The son would just like to be treated just like a paid servant. This is his attempt at satisfaction or reparation

Contrition = I feel very sorry for what I did

Confession = I confess my sins to the priest

Absolution = The priest forgives me my sins

Satisfaction or reparation = after confession I do some penance to repair the damage.

The Rites of Reconciliation are:

- The First Rite of Reconciliation: This is a rite that we would commonly call confession where we confess our sins to the priest.

- The Second Rite of Reconciliation: This rite is a communal liturgy where a community will come together and follow a normal mass routine excluding the Eucharist. Individual confession is also completed during the liturgy.

- The Third Rite of Reconciliation: This rite is rarely done but happens usually in times of war or when a ship is sinking (usually a time where death may be near for a group of people) a general absolution is given by a priest so that the people may rest knowing God has forgiven them.

Roman Catholic AnswerThe three sacraments "of the dead", that is the three sacraments which can be administered to a person who is "dead in their sins" - not in a state of grace, are Baptism, Confession, and - to a certain extent - Anointing of the Sick, as St. James says that the last "releases from sins" or reconciled with God.
