    One of the most commonly asked questions about the Catholic faith is “Why do I have to confess my sins to a priest? Why can’t I just confess them directly to God?”

    In this important new Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre provides solid, biblical answers to this common objection. Using the teachings of Sacred Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments, Dr. Pitre unveils the biblical roots of the Catholic sacrament of reconciliation. In this presentation, you will learn about:


    • The Old Testament Practice of Confession
    • The Biblical Difference between Mortal Sin and Venial Sin
    • When Jesus gave the Apostles the Power to Forgive Sins
    • Why Confession goes back to Jesus Himself
    • The Meaning of St. James’ Words: “Confess Your Sins to One Another”
    • Pope Francis’ Encouraging Words about Confession


    If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between mortal and venial sin; or if you’ve have a family member or friend who hasn’t been to confession in years and you’d like to encourage them; or if you yourself have struggled with whether or not to receive the sacrament of reconciliation, then this Bible study is for you.

    Along the way, you’ll get encouragement from Pope Francis himself, who says to us all: “Be courageous, Go to confession!”

Pitre for Pope!

Seriously, I enjoy Dr Pitre s messages and research so much. One of the best teachings on confession, especially for a recent convert, who comes from a negative view of the whole sacrament. Thanks dr Pitre.

Good presentation

A good presentation as usual. I would have liked to have seen one additional piece of information and this is how to navigate the examination of conscience instruction so as to make my confession complete.
