Pope Francis On Confession (Word To Word)

Pope Francis On Confession (Word To Word) :

“Someone can say, ‘I confess my sins only to God.’ Yes, you can say to God, ‘forgive me,’ and
say your sins. But our sins are also against our brothers, against the Church. This is why it is
necessary to ask forgiveness of the Church and of our brothers, in the person of the Priest
. . . Forgiveness is not something we can give ourselves.”

“[Someone may say:]Father, I am embarrassed! Even embarrassment is good. It’s healthy to
have a bit of shame… it does us good, because it makes us more humble. Don’t be afraid of
confession . . . When someone is in line for confession he feels all these things – even shame –
but then, when he finishes confessing, he leaves (feeling) free, great, beautiful, forgiven,
clean, happy. The sacrament of reconciliation is a sacrament of healing.”

“Be courageous, and go to confession.”
