Flynn, author of the best-seller,7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key secrets or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.

The understanding that many Catholics have of the Sacrament of Confession is so limited and narrow in its focus that it keeps them from discovering the real beauty and value of this Sacrament beauty and value that even a young child can understand if it s presented properly. For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It s "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are.

In his years of speaking all over North America, Flynn saw that many Catholics have this limited appreciation of Confession, and the urgent need for clear teaching about this great Sacrament. If you have not yet experienced Confession as a wonderful, personal encounter with Christ; if you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.

Editorial Reviews

Simple and clear, yet profound, this is a book which should be found in every Catholic home and on the book shelf of every confessor and director of souls. --Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner, S.T.D. Author, St. Maximilian Kolbe: Martyr of Charity

I greatly admire the writings of Vinny Flynn. You are going to love his latest gem, 7 Secrets of Confession! In an age in which the Sacrament of Reconciliation is often misunderstood and even ignored, this book offers invaluable insights. I will definitely be recommending it to the many people I meet as I travel and speak. --Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC Author, Under the Mantle

Vinny Flynn is my favorite Catholic writer, bar none. In 7 Secrets of Confession, he addresses the most misunderstood sacrament of the Church, and his readers will never look at confession the same way again. Taking the intimidation factor out of this great sacrament, he brings it into new relevancy for today's Catholics and helps us realize that confession is not something we have to do; it's something we get to do. --Felix Carroll, Author, Lost, Loved, Found: 17 Divine Mercy Conversions

Simple and clear, yet profound, this is a book which should be found in every Catholic home and on the book shelf of every confessor and director of souls. --Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner, S.T.D. Author, St. Maximilian Kolbe: Martyr of Charity
