In the Bible, the Gospels tell how Jesus sacrificed himself to redeem humanity from sin and thereby reconcile humanity with God. Redemption is an act of forgiveness for sins or mistakes. It is the process of forgiving another person, oneself, or God for sin.
Redemption can be achieved by confession to a priest and accepting the penance, which may include prayers, fasting, service to others or some other action. Motivational quotes about redemption are here below
