How to Make a Good Confession

I came across a link on Twitter the other day and wanted to share it with you. It’s Father Z’s 20 Tips for making How to Make a Good Confessiona good confession.

Confession is a sadly misunderstood sacrament within and without the Catholic Church. It’s such a shame, too. The Sacrament of Confession (now widely known as the Sacrament of Reconciliation) is a tremendous gift from God to the Church.

I remember years ago reading in the book Pierced by a Sword (aff link) confession being described as “whispering into the ears of Jesus.” And, in faith, we know that is exactly what confession is. When we confess our sins we are whispering (or talking) to God through the priest, who is an instrument of God’s grace.

From personal experience, I can say that Confession is a very powerful and healing sacrament. I have often been deeply touched by God’s grace in the confessional and always come out strengthened in faith and ready to do battle for the Lord.

Anyhoo, getting back on point: Father Z offers very practical tips, from waiting in line patiently to how to confess any mortal sins. Do take a moment to check those tips out. 🙂
