My Confession Book
We have come across an amazing little book, a classic, which was first published in 1958 and has helped countless children with their First Confessions as well as with their subsequent Confessions. Boys and girls who use this book will receive wonderful help with making a careful Examination of Conscience in accord with the Ten Commandments, having true sorrow for their sins, making a firm Purpose of Amendment, and remembering what to do and say in the Confessional. Also included here are the Act of Contrition, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and many other prayers for before and after Holy Communion.
This book was specially designed to help children grow in goodness, purity, and love for Our Lord. Despite its small size, it is filled with the traditional Catholic teaching on the Sacrament of Penance and how to receive it well. My Confession Book can be a wonderful key to acquiring the habit of frequent Confession–a practice which has always been a giant step toward holiness.
