Confession: The Forgotten Sacrament
This short but powerful film begins by explaining the reality and gravity of sin and the effect it has on our lives and the lives of others. You then discover the Biblical roots of the need for a confession of sins, and the institution of Confession as a sacrament by Jesus Christ. Although presenting sin in its true light, this film focuses on the love and mercy of God - that although we are all sinners, He is always waiting, patiently, lovingly, fatherly, for us to return.
Commentary is provided by well known speakers and authors including Fr Nicholas Schofield, Fr Thomas Crean, Fr Marcus Holden, Fr Jeremy Davies and more. It is an ideal film for any Catholic who has been away from Confession for a long period of time, or for those who are anxious or worried about this sacrament. For those who already frequent the sacrament, it will offer inspiration and encouragement to continue to grow in their spiritual life.
Also contains a leaflet on how to make an examination of conscience and a good confession.
