Is God Calling You Back to Confession? (Special Podcast Highlight)

How long has it been since your last confession?

If it’s been a while and you are holding on to sin and shame, God wants to free you!

Patrick Conley is joined by Fr. Patrick Hyde, OP to talk about how to make a great confession. They walk through the steps and how to properly mention a mortal sin.

Fr. Hyde is asked about what to do if you’ve forgotten how many times you committed a mortal sin, and what to remind yourself if you’ve become discouraged about confessing the same sins over and over again.
