"If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:8-10)
Only God forgives sins. Since He is the Son of God, Jesus says of Himself, "The Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins" (Mark 2:10) and exercises this divine power by stating "Your sins are forgiven" (Mark 2:5).
Further, by virtue of His divine authority He gives this power to men to exercise in His name.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you." And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained." (John 20:20-23)
New life received in Christian initiation has not abolished the frailty and weakness of human nature, nor the inclination to sin, which remains in the baptized. The Sacraments help in the struggle of Christian life, by applying the grace of Christ to each individual believer.
