"I want to go to Communion, so I have to go to confession."
Sound familiar? To 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 7 Secrets of Confession, best-selling author Vinny Flynn explores the "hidden" truths of this encounter with Jesus, presenting what to many will be a whole new way of going to confession, and inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness.
If you do not yet look forward to confession in the same way you look forward to Communion, read on. It will change your life.
Confession has been called the Sacrament of the New Evangelization. It is the sacred encounter with Christ where we experience God's mercy and forgiveness. Vinny Flynn helps make even more accessible this beautiful sacrament of healing. Those who read this short but insightful book should be able to approach the Sacrament of Confession with greater love, fervor and gratitude and come away convinced that they are not only forgiven but truly healed and liberated. 7 Secrets of Confession is a helpful tool in the ongoing challenge of the New Evangelization. I am happy to recommend it to every Catholic and confessor. His Eminence, Donald Cardinal Wuerl Archbishop of Washington
Vinny Flynn shows why confession of our sins is integral to evangelizing. Only when we recognize our sinfulness do we begin to appreciate the infinite goodness of the Lord. Only when we have experienced God's forgiveness are we free to take up the mission of the Church. 7 Secrets of Confession gets to the heart of discipleship. His Eminence, Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I Archbishop of Chicago
Congratulations on another excellent treatment of a somewhat difficult subject. Simple and clear, yet profound, this is a book which should be found in every Catholic home and on the book shelf of every confessor and director of souls. Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner, S.T.D. Author, St. Maximilian Kolbe: Martyr of Charity
Vinny Flynn's '7 Secrets' are like seven explosions that blow away the obstacles keeping us from the Sacrament of Mercy. If you've ever dragged your feet on the way to confession, gotten discouraged about confessing the same sins over and over, or wondered how your confessions could be more fruitful, then you'll love this book. It turns what many see as a tiresome obligation into a precious, longed-for encounter with the Lord. Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC Author, 33 Days to Morning Glory, Consoling the Heart of Jesus, and The One Thing Is Three
