Those who approach the sacrament of Reconciliation (also called Confession or Penance), obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.

Why do we have to confess our sins to a priest?

Can't we just pray to God for forgiveness?

If I sin but no one is affected then can I say, "no harm, no foul?"

The Sacrament of Penance - aka Reconciliation - is one of the healing sacraments, & celebrates the loving embrace of God when we turn toward Him & away from our sins.
