### What are the signs of reconciliation?

Roman Catholic
Answer
Two symbols that represent that sacrament of reconciliation would
be the crossed keys, which represent Jesus' words to Peter in
giving him the keys to the kingdom and the authority to forgive
sins; and a purple stole, which is the garment worn by the priest
when celebrating the sacrament of reconciliation. The sign that is
used during the sacrament is a raised hand, of the priest, when
pronouncing absolution, and the sign of the cross he makes over the
penitent's head.
