Saint Padre Pio was a great confessor.  Celebrate his day with the Sacrament of Penance. If you go to confession regularly, keep it up. If you haven’t been to confession for awhile, don’t be afraid! God always awaits you with open arms.

Here is a video to help you relax and gain confidence.

Once you decide to go to confession, here’s a reminder of what to do.

From the web site of the American bishops, we have an examination of conscience in light of Catholic social teaching.

Also from the bishops, we have examinations of conscience for people of different ages and states in life.

Here’s an Examination of Conscience for High School Students that others might also find helpful.

Have you considered how to examine your use of social media before confession?

There are many Confession Apps to help you prepare for the Sacrament. Be careful in checking these out. An app cannot substitute for the Sacrament. Here you can learn about one app.
