+  7 Secrets of Confession

  • Description: "The understanding that many Catholics have of the Sacrament of Confession is so limited and narrow in its focus that it keeps them from discovering the real beauty and value of this Sacrament beauty and value that even a young child can understand if it's presented properly. For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than 'going to the dry cleaner.'" It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are." Vinny Flynn is here to explain.
