When it comes to sin, no one’s an innocent bystander. But do we really need to bring those sins to a priest in the sacrament of penance? Why? And what do priests think of the sacrament? Are they bored in the confessional? Distracted? Shocked by what they hear? As The Untapped Power of the Sacrament of Penance makes clear, priests cherish the sacrament of reconciliation as a powerful movement of God’s healing love. If you have abandoned the confessional out of fear or apathy or the conviction that you don’t have any “real” sins to confess—or if you are merely a once- or twice-a-year penitent—this book will put you back on track. There’s no time like the present to return to this remarkable source of God’s mercy and grace.

This is an excellent book.
Ellen, a sinner (CT, August 18, 2009)
I found this book takes away all fear and apprehension that we developed as children.
I grew up in the 40's and 50's; I no longer
suffer the hang-up's of that generation in
regard to confession.
I am at peace now when I have to go to confession. Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers, Younger Readers; Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Find comfort and peace, I already felt forgiven, Takes away all fears, Well Written
