    When it comes to the Catholic Church in our time, perhaps the most frequently asked question is: "Why do I have to confess my sins to a priest?" It is often followed by two others: "Why can't I just go straight to God? Where is the sacrament of confession in the Bible?"

    In Why We Confess, Dr. Brant Pitre gives an eye-opening Bible study on the origins and meaning of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, commonly known as "Confession." In this two-part Bible Study, you will learn about:

    • The Fall of Adam and Eve and the First "Confession"
    • Confession of Sins to a Priest in the Old Testament
    • John's Baptism of Repentance and Confession of Sins
    • The link between Jesus' Miraculous Healings and the Sacrament of Reconciliation
    • The Parable of the Prodigal Son
    • When Jesus Gave the Apostles the Power to Absolve and Retain Sins
    • The Practice of Confession in the Early Church

    Many of us know Catholics who haven't been to Confession in years, even decades. Maybe you are one of them. Whoever you are -- if you've ever wondered about the biblical roots of this sacrament, then Why We Confess is the Bible Study for you.

    As you'll discover, Jesus was (quite literally) dying to institute the sacrament of Confession as an essential part of God's plan for "reconciling the world to himself" (2 Corinthians 5:19).

Why We Confess

In this presentation, Dr. Pitre guides us through the historical relevance of the sacrament of confession. You will be surprised to find out how this sacrament was valid even since Adam's time in the Garden of Eden! This product is a must for anyone who wishes to understand the historical divinity behind one of the most popular sacraments that is attributed with Catholicism. It helped me understand how confession is a strong outward sign of God's loving mercy (to which we are all invited)!

Why We Confess

My husband is beginning the conversion process and we both rely on Brant Petrie’s videos to answer so many questions that we both have about the faith. Coming from a Protestant background, this topic is of special interest to him. Thank you Catholic Productions, and Brant Petrie for supplying such a valuable product!

Great for RCIA

I use a lot of Dr. Pitre's videos in teaching RCIA. This is a very detailed and perfect explanation of why we confess to priests. Highly recommend.

The Guardian

It was great. I’m waiting for his book on the “Jewish Roots of St. Joseph”

I always enjoy the MP3’s I buy from Catholic Productions.

The Hidden King, The Jewish Routes of St Joseph

Well presented and extremely informative. Great insight into the true meaning of passages based on the traditions of the writers which explains their intent.

Brant does not disappoint!

Great resource!

I never knew so much about St. Joseph. Only Dr. Pitre can go so in-depth with so much passion, and bring out the best information, and present it in the most understandable way.
