Why Go to Confession?
Archbishop Bruno Forte
Do you find yourself asking why you have to go to Confession? Maybe you’ve asked why you have to tell your sins to a priest; and not directly to God? Perhaps you’ve wondered if sin even exists at all.
The sacrament of Reconciliation can seem daunting and unpleasant to many busy Catholics. Archbishop Bruno Forte addresses common questions and explains the value of confessing to a priest.
Confession brings joy to hearts of many; discover how you, too, can experience a renewed spirit and communion with God.
Includes helpful questions for an examination of conscience based on the Ten Commandments and prayers of sorrow in preparation for Confession.
A helpful tool both for people who regularly go to Confession and for those who don’t frequent the sacrament. Useful, too, for pastors and spiritual directors who often face many of the questions treated in this book.
The perfect size for slipping into a purse or coat pocket, Why Go to Confession? is an enlightening read for anyone struggling with the sacrament of Reconciliation.
