Teens – and adults – are being swallowed up and spit out by a secular humanist, morally relativist culture. People have forgotten a fundamental truth about sin: namely, that God did not give Adam and Eve the right to decide what was good and evil (subjective); in His mercy, He gave them the right to choose between good and evil (objective).
In recent years, unfortunately, the Sacrament of Penance has turned into the forgotten sacrament of the Catholic Church. The confessional has been abandoned by large numbers, and now only a few make regular use of this Sacrament of God’s mercy. As a consequence of this, people are losing their sense of sin and teens are growing up without this awesome gift. If we do not help make them aware of sin or imperfections in their lives, they will see no need to go to confession.
