Sacrament of Reconciliation


#1

I wish to know if there is any encyclical or other document that deals with the sacrament of Reconciliation.

Uzor Oliver, have you read the Catechism, paragraphs 1422 to 1498?

Depends what you are looking for.

I. You can get “Laudate” on your App if you want to cover Confession as it gives a list
of what you should go through to confess.

  1. If you want to read "Catholicism for Dummies " also covers Confession

3 Also the OP also suggested the catechism which is also excellent.

  1. Go into a Catholic Book Shop there might be a book dedicated to “Confession” on why one should go etc.
