I’m going to be late for work because I couldn’t stop watching session 3 on Forgiven. I thought the first episode was amazing but this one takes the cake! It not only touches on the head knowledge of confession but reaches the most important part, heart knowledge - knowing how much God loves us. Whoever was the cinematic genius who thought of the idea of having each priest recite part of the prayer of absolution I want you to know it brought me to tears. This is going to be an invaluable resource not only for our parishioners but also for those going through RCIA. Well done Augustine Institute. Well done!! Lisa Martin, St. Leo’s, Ridgway, PA

Could God Love Someone Like Me?

Could God Love Someone Like Me?

Fr. Mike Schmitz, one of the leading presenters in the Church today, speaks powerfully about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He makes clear the truth that Christ deeply loves and wants to encounter each of us as we are, with all our imperfections. Fr. Mike debunks the lies we often believe about not being good enough to approach Jesus, and he draws upon Scripture to explain rationally why we go to priests to encounter God’s mercy and forgiveness in Confession.

 

A great discussion on Mercy and Reconciliation for Catholics of all ages and perhaps those outside of the church to better understand one of the most important sacraments. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. It makes you want to go to confession immediately. St. Charles, MO

Spanish - 7 Secretos de la Confesion

Spanish - 7 Secretos de la Confesion

Para muchos Católicos, la confesión es solo un medio para alcanzar un fin: lavarnos del pecado para poder recibir la Comunión. Sin embargo, como nos dice el Papa Francisco, la confesión es mucho más que “ir a la lavandería.” Es “un encuentro con Jesús que nos espera como somos.”

En 7 Secretos de la Confesión, el autor de gran éxito de ventas, Vinny Flynn, explora las verdades “ocultas” de ese encuentro con Cristo, presentando lo que para muchos será un modo nuevo de acercarse a la confesión, e invitándote a iniciar un apasionante camino personal de sanación y santidad.

Si aún no ansias la confesión de la misma manera que ansias la Comunión, lee este libro. Cambiará tu vida.


English Translation:

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, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.

If you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.

This book is also available in English.

7 Secrets of Confession - Book

Click here to read book sample.

Vinny Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.

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."

In his years of speaking all over North America, Flynn saw that many Catholics have this limited appreciation of Confession, and the urgent need for clear teaching about this great Sacrament. If you have not yet experienced Confession as a wonderful, personal encounter with Christ; if you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.

 

There was so much information revealed to my about Confession in this book. It completely changed the way I see confession now. It also showed me a deeper level of the mystery of confession and God's mercy and love for us. It showed me more of how awesome and loving God is! Gia - Sheridan, WY

When people decide to follow Christ, they often experience conversion. In fact many of the saints refer to continuous conversion throughout their lives. In this talk, Mark Hart tells the story of his conversion and encourages us to be made new in Christ.

 

Mark's genuine enthusiasm and love of Catholicism is wickedly amazing. This guy is blessed to be able to relate all things Bible + Catholic in a way that you will get 'it' both in the Head and Heart. My favorite experience in this talk is an exercise Mark leads us on where you WILL encounter Christ. God bless, and best of luck to you, Mark! Eric - Plum, PA
