    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!”

Why do I have to go for confession?

This video was excellent in helping me understand the why, what and how of the sacrament. Sacramdnts are such a gift to us, we should truly try to understand the significance and meaning behind it to appreciate it right. Dr Pitre teaches just that and really helps you go deeper.

Life after Death, a Bible study on the 7 last things

This study could also be titled: the 7 most important things to know in our earthly life, as what happens when we die, affects how we live today.
Brant Pitre is one of the most outstanding teachers of Scripture.
He takes a complex topic, breaks it up into bite size chucks, articulates it in a way that is comprehensible, referencing Scripture.
He covers so much ground in a limited time frame, never a dull moment.
He has a good sense of humor too.
In this study, using Scripture, he helps us understand the many questions we ask about what happens when we die.
It is worth every cent
Michael is just so helpful in making sure, we get to access the material correctly.

Excellent

This is so good that I bought two more to give as gifts!

Wonderful

This is a beautiful and moving study of the Triduum, my favorite time of the year. It’s also my first presentation from Dr. Bergsma, but it definitely won’t be my last.
