Help Me Understand Confession
Help Me Understand Confession:
Fr. John Bartunek and Dan Burke talk about how to better understand confession.
“The Father has shown forth his mercy by reconciling the world to himself in Christ and by making peace for all things on earth and in heaven by the blood of Christ on the cross. The Son of God made man lived among us in order to free us from the slavery of sin and to call us out of darkness into his wonderful light … The Lord said to Peter: ‘I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed also in heaven’ (Matthew 16:19).” (From the Rite of Penance, paragraph 1)
