The Penitent Christian
by Fr. Francis Hunolt, 1740

"Sinners, there is no other means for you to clean your souls, if they are affected with leprosy, that is, with the stain of mortal sin, and to receive forgiveness from the God whom you have offended, but to "show yourselves to the priests," to examine your consciences with candor, and to confess your sins fully. But wait a little; after all, the examen of conscience and the confession of one's sins are not enough; that which is chiefly required before confession is to have a true sorrow for sin, and it is that in which most people are wanting."--Page 279
