According to canon 842, § 2, for Christian initiation to be complete, the three sacraments of baptism, confirmation and the Eucharist are required. The entire life of believers is a response, daily lived, to the Good News, along with the need for conversion, as well as reconciliation with one’s neighbour. The importance of the sacrament of penance is rooted in the desire, daily felt, to conform more and more to God’s call.
