Overview


Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (200,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.

The understanding that many Catholics have of the Sacrament of Confession is so limited and narrow in its focus that it keeps them from discovering the real beauty and value of this Sacrament -- beauty and value that even a young child can understand if it's presented properly. For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are."

In his years of speaking all over North America, Flynn saw that many Catholics have this limited appreciation of Confession, and the urgent need for clear teaching about this great Sacrament. If you have not yet experienced Confession as a wonderful, personal encounter with Christ; if you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.

Editorial Reviews

Endorsement - His Eminence, Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington
Confession has been called the Sacrament of the New Evangelization. It is the sacred encounter with Christ where we experience God's mercy and forgiveness. Those who read this short but insightful book should be able to approach the Sacrament of Confession with greater love, fervor and gratitude and come away convinced that they are not only forgiven but truly healed and liberated. I am happy to recommend it to every Catholic and confessor.
Endorsement - His Eminence, Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I, Archbishop of Chicago
Vinny Flynn shows why confession of our sins is integral to evangelizing. Only when we recognize our sinfulness do we begin to appreciate the infinite goodness of the Lord. Only when we have experienced God's forgiveness are we free to take up the mission of the Church. 7 Secrets of Confession gets to the heart of discipleship.
Endorsement - Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner, S.T.D.
Congratulations on another excellent treatment of a somewhat difficult subject. Simple and clear, yet profound, this is a book which should be found in every Catholic home and on the book shelf of every confessor and director of souls.
Endorsement - Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC
Vinny Flynn's '7 Secrets' are like seven explosions that blow away the obstacles keeping us from the Sacrament of Mercy. If you've ever dragged your feet on the way to confession, gotten discouraged about confessing the same sins over and over, or wondered how your confessions could be more fruitful, then you'll love this book. It turns what many see as a tiresome obligation into a precious, longed-for encounter with the Lord.
Radio Maria Host, Living Eucharist - Kathleen Beckman
7 Secrets of Confession is one of the most inspiring, exciting, and necessary books on the Sacrament! Vinny Flynn masterfully leads the reader to plumb the depths of divine love offered us in a Sacrament that heals, liberates, restores, and sanctifies. I will approach Confession in a whole new light of truth because of this book. May it be read and lived by every Catholic!
