This lecture is called: Confession: Purification of the Soul, was presented at our parish by Father Patrick O’Grady is Sr Priest at St Peter the Apostle, Pomona, CA California.
Fr Patrick speaks about the history of and the purpose of confession, (“why can’t I merely make my confession to God?”), the preparation for (e.g. how often; what should I confess), and how different traditions and jurisdictions regard or mandate confession as it relates to receiving the Holy Eucharist (must one make formal confession before each Eucharist?). The focus is on practical information that will help you value, understand and become more regular at the confessional.
