 Our Description

Benedict Baur

Frequent Confession presents convincing and strong evidence for the benefits of frequent reception of the sacrament of Penance for the health and growth of the spiritual life of all faithful.

"To win the battles of the soul, the best strategy often is to bide one's time and apply the suitable remedy with patience and perseverance."  So wrote St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei who tirelessly urged the practice of frequent confession for spiritual advancement.

The book is divided into two parts.  The first shows the purposes and practice of confession from the aspect of confessor and penitent.  The second examines the many areas where confession applies.

An extensive introduction was written by Rev. Salvador Ferigle, who as a layman in 1949 began the apostolate of Opus Dei in the U.S. and died in 1997 at 72.  The book is newly indexed.
