Penance is a term we use to describe the outward expression of repentance for having done something wrong. The teachings of our faith tell us that penance is an important part of the faith formation process. We cannot grow in faith if we do not self-reflect and recognize areas of our behavior and attitude that do not reflect God’s love and grace. In light of that, penance is necessary if we hope to deepen our personal relationship with God. We do penance because we want to clear away the distractions and negativity we are bombarded with in our world every day. When we do penance we make more room for God in our lives, ridding ourselves of the people, behaviors and habits that keep us from participating in our spiritual and religious life to the fullest.
