• Confession: Its Fruitful Practice, With an Examination of Conscience

This wonderful and practical little book explains clearly and thoroughly how to make a good Confession - but in much greater detail than covered in most catechisms. It includes an examination of conscience; contrition and its necessary qualities; the purpose of amendment and its necessary qualities; avoiding the near occassion of sin; the actual Confession of sins to the priest; and the penance given by the priest. The booklet also explains perfect and imperfect contrition and how to make acts of perfect contrition; it then considers sacriligious Confession, how to rectify a bad Confession, and General Confession. Confession of venial sins is also discussed, and the many benefits of frequent Confession are explained.

After these beautiful, clear explanations, the booklet then guides the reader through preparation for a good Confession, including an examination of conscience based on the Ten Commandments of God and Six Precepts of the Church, worthy reception of the Sacraments, the Seven Capital Sins, duties of specific states of life, and the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Also included are considerations to excite contrition and prayers before and after Confession. This is truly a most valuable little handbook about Confession, packed with the traditional teachings of the Church on the Sacrament of Penancea Sacrament which is both the salvation of those in mortal sin and a much-neglected key to growth in holiness for all Catholics.
