Today we look at some practical details about the sacrament of Confession. Confession is so important that we should be intent on getting it right, and so sacred that we should be cautious to approach this sacrament with reverence. And yet it is so common that we often slip into error. In addition, many people were never taught correctly about how to go to confession.
The point of the sermon is not to make people scrupulous about if they are doing all things right in the confessional, but to help people be a little more efficient and more fruitful. That way we can be a little more analytical about sins so that we can know ourselves better and we can make better confessions.
