Freedom and Forgiveness - A Fresh Look at the Sacrament of Reconciliation

"Somewhere along the line, in the history of the Church, people have become more centered upon obedience to laws than on relationship with Jesus. This book flows from an understanding of Confession as a meeting of love and a renewal of friendship."  - Jean Vanier, from the forward

In “Freedom & Forgiveness: A Fresh Look at the Sacrament of Reconciliation”,  Father Farren examines the history of the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the ways it brings us into a deeper experience of God. Totaling just 85 pages, this little book is simple, easy to read, and deeply prayerful. Father Paul’s Irish storytelling background comes to the forefront as he articulates simply but effectively the history of confession with a fresh look to the sacraments which profoundly centers a tone of New Evangelization.

Confession is somewhat daunting for many of us; yet Farren argues, “Our understanding of the sacrament reveals our image of God. If our image of God is one of an uncompromising judge, then the sacrament can fill us with dread.” Instead of coming to confession to avoid judgment and hellfire, Father Farren paints a picture of the Sacrament of Reconciliation which presents a loving God who longs for a restored relationship with His children. It is an inspirational picture and one that is presented compellingly.
