This new publication of The Order of Penance is produced with the same high-quality standards one has come to expect from MTF’s liturgical offerings — especially the Roman Missal and The Book of the Gospels. Both the quality and beauty of this revised ritual edition of The Order of Penance helps convey the solemnity and dignity of the Sacrament of Penance.
