"On Concealing Sins in Confession" (part 2)

 Sacrament of Confession

The following is taken from a sermon for the Third Sunday in Lent by our Lenten guide, St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor of the Church:

"Some penitents ask: What will my confessor say, when he hears that I have committed such a sin?  What will he say?  He will say that your are, like all persons living on this Earth, miserable and prone to sin: he will say that, if you have done evil, you have also performed a glorious action, in overcoming shame and in candidly confessing your sins."

St. Alphonsus Liguori, pray for us.
