Sin separates us from God
This might be to say a prayer OR It might be to make amends. For example if you disobeyed your mum or day, you might be asked to do something for them without being asked. Penance makes things right.

Steps of Reconciliation
Do we take time out to pray and worship God? Do we show respect for our parents and teachers by doing what we are asked to do and speaking respectfully? Do we speak about God and our church with respect and reverence? Do we respect others by treating them kindly? Do we speak and act honestly? Do we choose to be peacemakers rather than troublemakers? Do we share and respect our belongings and other people’s things? Do we give some of our money and time to the poor, the sick and the hungry? Examination of Conscience - 1
