Confession - Advice and Encouragement from Pope Benedict XVI
For many today, Confession is a misunderstood part of the Catholic Faith. Some people do not see the need to ask for forgiveness, while others do not know why they should go to a priest: Why can't it just be between me and God? But the sacrament of Confession is one that needs to be re-discovered, according to Pope Benedict. In this booklet, frequently-asked questions on confession are posed, with answers drawn from the teachings of the Holy Father: why the Sacrament matters, what its roots are in Holy Scripture and Church teaching, and what good it can do for an individual person as well as for society as a whole.
