How to Make a Good Confession

with Fr. Timothy Furlow

Catholics confess their sins to a priest. This encounter is not solely with the person of the priest, but with God himself. The sacrament of Confession or the sacrament of healing is the moment in which we allow Jesus to heal our relationship with him. Preparing well for this encounter is important because it allows us to see who we really are and how we truly need to be healed.
