About this Book:

Archbishop Bruno Forte addresses the most common questions and concerns Catholics have about the sacrament of Reconciliation: "Why do we have to go to Confession?" "Why tell my sins to a priest; can't I confess directly to God?" "Does sin even exist?" Clear, honest, and pastorally sensitive answers help readers better appreciate this sacrament of personal encounter with the mercy of God. Archbishop Forte further explores how asking for forgiveness with conviction, receiving it with gratitude, and generously giving it to others can bring us unrivalled peace.

Includes helpful questions for an examination of conscience based on the 10 Commandments and prayers of sorrow in preparation for Confession.

Features & Benefits:

  • Significant Bible passages guide readers into deeper reflection on the sacrament of forgiveness.
  • Features a helpful guide for an examination of conscience based on the 10 Commandments.
  • Offers various forms of the Act of Contrition.
  • 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 spirtual directors who often face many of the questions treated in this book.
