A Video Examination of Conscience

In preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation next week, I did a little exploring on YouTube for a video examination of conscience. Here’s one that I found that’s not bad. I plan to search for more. If you know of a good one, please share!

    Thank you for sharing this Joe…this is so much closer to relating to our young people than what is often offered and it shows another way to tap into what engages our young people and is faithful to our faith. God’s blessings!

    I would probably see this as more of a high school reflection.
    There are still the IConfessContest videos on youtube.
    I still like the “Get Clean Video”…

    But that isn’t an examination of conscience.

    Just when you think that that was a great idea you always continue to wow us! That was beautiful. I wish we get copies of this send videos out of this to each parish and play during mass.
    The Jewish people have Yom Kipur. a whole day of Atonement
    I kind of think of Divine Mercy sun. as our Yom Kipur our day of atonement that video would be a great homily for priests to encourage Reconcilliation.—- seeing that our confessional are pretty much empty.
    Just the silence of this video and reading this really makes me think of — I think it was St. Francis of Assissi I preach the Gospel and sometimes I use words.
    Great ideas Joe!

    Thanks for sharing different avenues of teaching so as to open the hearts of our youth to Jesus, our savior! Who is the name of the artist and the song?

    Dear Joe,

    Thank you for the video, a great refresher for us a little more “mature” than who we teach or as an excellent aid for Adult Education too! Always looking forward to your file inbox.

    Peace be upon you!

    Thank you for sharing! I think this is great for my 8th graders preparing for Confirmation. I’m also trying to find music/video on 10 commandments – any suggestions? Thank you in advance. God bless. Marta, Hicksville, NY

      Thanks Marta. I’m not aware of any music/video on the Commandments but I’ll keep my eyes open!

      It might be too young… depends on if your kids are into songs and praise and worship type stuff.
      Sometimes you can find skits of kids on youtube who have done projects for their high school class. Kids sometimes like seeing other kids act out the Ten Commandemnts. Or better yet, have the kids break up into groups and make their own skit up to perform in front of each other or another class.

    Beautiful….gave me goosies! I just shared with all the other grade 8 catechists. Thanks soooo much for providing resources for the older grades. The internet is so full of elementary resources. Teen resources are hard to find. I’m glad I found your blog and hope you continue to post more teen-appropriate material. This video is just phenomenal.

    Do you know of an Examination of Conscience video for younger kids, specifically 4th grade?

      Nancy, I haven’t seen one online. I did make my own using PowerPoint but cannot share it because of copyright issues with the images. However, it is easy to make your own PowerPoint put to music. Just be sure the examination of conscience is word appropriate for that grade level. Your 4th grade text book most likely has an examination of conscience you can adapt.
