How to replace fear with love during the Sacrament of Penance? In my opinion - being well aware of our sinfulness - we all shall remember that Jesus died not only because of each and every transgression of human beings (yes, He really did this), but - first and foremost - for their souls & bodies*.

*Filled with love and gratitude that will come as the consequence of just-mentioned truth, be merciful to yourself; perhaps someday you will be chosen as a tool/proof of Jesus' Mercy.
PS Please pray for a dying friend of my mother and for my grandmother who passed away almost nine years ago. Thank you all.
