A Study on the Sacrament of Confession

Course Summary


St John says: “If we say we have no sin, … the truth is not in us” (1 Jn 20:19).


Nothing could be more foolish than to live in sin and deserve eternal punishment.


Our life would be a failure, and we would be condemned forever.


The only reasonable thing is to look for the solution in the sacrament of penance.


To understand this solution is the purpose of these classes.
