Forgive Us Our Trespasses

Mother Mary Loyola's work on the subject of Confession is not merely groundbreaking, but seems to form one of the most crucial of her strengths, given that the Sacrament of Penance has always been the most avoidable and avoided of all; many Catholics express a distaste for it akin to torment.

For her readers, however, such angst is inconceivable, as she does not merely help to remove all fear and discomfort associated with the Confessional; she also enkindles a deep sense of appreciation for the gift of the sacrament. This, in turn, fosters an eager anticipation of the grace it confers.

Those who make use of Forgive Us Our Trespasses - whether children or adults - will find themselves seeking this healing sacrament with regularity.
