Description

Fr. Alfred Wilson, perhaps the best-known English-language confessor of the mid-20th century, brought great hope to countless conscientious people who were trying to conquer faults and to understand how Confession could help them work out a better spiritual life. Among his themes in three wide-ranging and practical essays:

  • Remorse or repentance: what is required for true contrition?
  • What it means to make a firm purpose of amendment
  • The conditions for a valid confession
  • Reducing, but not eliminating, our sins—the surprising truth about what the Church requires
  • Proper formation of resolutions
  • The benefits of human weakness
  • Reasons for our failure to improve in the spiritual life
  • Proper motives for confession
  • The danger of “spiritual myopia”
  • “The remedy for all our failures is to love God more”
  • Approaching the sacrament of confession with appropriate confidence
  • What is required for adequate reparation for sin
  • Growing out of “emotional infancy”
  • Avoiding the “mirage of routinism”
