More Things That You May Not Know About The Sacrament Of Confession

Christ instituted the sacrament of Penance for all sinful members of his Church: above all for those who, since Baptism, have fallen into grave sin, and have thus lost their baptismal grace and wounded ecclesial communion. It is to them that the sacrament of Penance offers a new possibility to convert and to recover the grace of justification. The Fathers of the Church present this sacrament as “the second plank [of salvation] after the shipwreck which is the loss of grace.”
It is called the sacrament of confession, since the disclosure or confession of sins to a priest is an essential element of this sacrament. In a profound sense it is also a “confession” – acknowledgment and praise – of the holiness of God and of his mercy toward sinful man.

It is called the sacrament of forgiveness, since by the priest’s sacramental absolution God grants the penitent “pardon and peace.”

It is called the sacrament of Reconciliation, because it imparts to the sinner the love of God who reconciles: “Be reconciled to God.” He who lives by God’s merciful love is ready to respond to the Lord’s call: “Go; first be reconciled to your brother.”
Confession to a priest is an essential part of the sacrament of Penance: “All mortal sins of which penitents after a diligent self-examination are conscious must be recounted by them in confession, even if they are most secret and have been committed against the last two precepts of the Decalogue; for these sins sometimes wound the soul more grievously and are more dangerous than those which are committed openly.”

When Christ’s faithful strive to confess all the sins that they can remember, they undoubtedly place all of them before the divine mercy for pardon. But those who fail to do so and knowingly withhold some, place nothing before the divine goodness for remission through the mediation of the priest, “for if the sick person is too ashamed to show his wound to the doctor, the medicine cannot heal what it does not know.”

Our audiobooks help people who are visually impaired, with vision loss, or no vision by enriching their knowledge and providing them with information, instruction and spiritual/religious education on different subjects through the means of a book that is in the audible format. Many who are blind or visually impaired—or who have reading or other physical disabilities and visual problems (dyslexia, migraine, eye floaters, diplopia, etc.)—often cannot use printed resources, depriving them of reading materials that most of us take for granted. Therefore, we provide free Catholic/religious audiobooks for those people with low vision to no vision.
We do not monetize any of our videos. if you see ads running on our videos, it is because the original owners (who gave us permission to upload them) want to monetize them, not us.
Please subscribe to our channel, like our videos, and share them. Please pray for us, for the conversion of souls, and for the souls in purgatory. Long live CHRIST the King! May the grace of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the love of GOD, and the fellowship of the HOLY SPIRIT be with you always. To JESUS Through Mary, His Immaculate Mother. Amen! Thank you and many blessings from GOD!
CHRISTUS Vincit! CHRISTUS Regnat! CHRISTUS Imperat!
