Catechism of the Day

Of Confession

How the unlearned should be taught to confess.

What is Confession?

Confession embraces two parts: one is that we confess our sins; the other, that we receive absolution, or forgiveness, from the confessor as from God Himself, and in no wise doubt, but firmly believe, that by it our sins are forgiven before God in heaven.

De Confessione

Quomodo simpliciores de ea erudiendi sint.

Quid est confessio?

Confessio duo comprehendit: unum est peccata confiteri, alterum est absolutionem sive remissionem a confessionario sive praecone evangelii accipere, tamquam ab ipso Deo, et non dubitare, sed firmiter credere peccata per illam absolutionem coram Deo in caelo remissa esse.
