Sin, guilt, failure, disappointment…these are all an unpleasant but universal reality of the human experience. We all have to deal with them, but we can’t do it alone. The remedy is immediately available and miraculously effective—the Sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation. 

Confession isn’t a rule, a formality, or an old-fashioned ritual. It’s an intimate and life-changing experience of God’s mercy.

Forgiven explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God’s love. By looking at God’s revelation of His mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience His indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation!
