This delightful program of the "angel" series by Gwen Costello, offers children information about friendship with Jesus, forgiveness, and the Rite of Penance, and it talks with children through the various steps of the rite. Angels Michaela and Andre first talk to the children about friendship and how it can be damaged or destroyed. They then talk about Jesus as the best friend of all, who loves us and forgives us when we fail. They explain that Jesus forgives our sins at Mass during the penitential rite, but also in the sacrament of reconciliation. The angels show children how to make an examination of conscience before receiving the sacrament of reconciliation and then they describe in detail the steps of the Rite of Penance. Though this program is primarily for children preparing for first reconciliation, it can be used with any lesson on the sacrament of reconciliation or forgiveness. A "Leader's Guide" is included with the DVD as well as a complete "Agenda for Parent Meeting." 12 minutes
