$ 7.95

The hardest thing for Catholics? Going to confession certainly ranks up there. This small book by Father Alfred Wilson, C.P., one of the foremost confessors and writers of the mid-20th century, is a wonderful, unscary handbook, not only for cradle Catholics, but also for those studying the Faith or for those interested in it.

  • The importance of Confession - why Catholics do not just confess “directly to God”
  • The practical value of confession
  • The difference between “regular” and “general” confessions
  • How to examine your conscience better
  • Danger: scrupulosity. Its causes and solutions
  • The problem of always being on “the safe side”
  • What to do about doubtful sins
  • False assumptions about confession
  • “Spiritual hypochondria” - what to do about it
  • Confessing the same sins over and over - what is required for a firm purpose of amendment?
