Thanks to the kind folks at MercySong, I’m excited to giveaway FIVE copies of Vinny Flynn’s new book, 7 Secrets of Confession. Read below to enter!
by Vinny Flynn
MercySong/Ignatius Press, 200 pages, paperback
This book is the second in the “7 Secret Series” published in collaboration with Ignatius Press. The first book, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist, has been a best-seller since its publication, and has currently been translated into five languages.
In 7 Secrets of Confession, author Vinny Flynn explores the “hidden” truths of this encounter with Jesus, presenting what to many will be a whole new way of going to confession, and inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. If you do no yet look forward to confession in the same way you look forward to Communion, read on. It will change your life.
“7 Secrets of Confession is a helpful tool in the ongoing challenge of the New Evangelization. I am happy to recommend it to every Catholic and confessor.”
— His Eminence Cardinal Donald Wuerl,
Archbishop of Washington
“If you are like me and greatly admire the writings and insights of Vinny Flynn, you are going to love his latest gem, 7 Secrets of Confession! It truly is a book so needed for our times. I will definitely be recommending it to the many people I meet as I travel and speak. As a priest, I’m just loving these books by Vinny Flynn!”
— Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, STL,
Author, Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest
“Truly wonderful. Here is the way ‘home’ — home to the embrace of the Father’s love and mercy this side of Heaven. The brave or even curious reader will find in these pages the path to forgiveness, to restoration, to wholeness and to freedom, the freedom to be all you were meant to be. Vinny Flynn has given us a gift — for every soul, for every fallen-away child, parent, friend and enemy, and for every faithful Catholic who carries the wounds of sin and unforgiveness and who desires to enter more deeply into the treasures that await in the healing and life-giving sacrament of confession.”
— Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God,
(Formerly Author, EWTN TV & Radio host, Rosalind Moss,) O.S.B.
“Vinny Flynn’s ‘7 Secrets’ are like seven explosions that blow away the obstacles keeping us from the Sacrament of Mercy. If you’ve ever dragged your feet on the way to confession, gotten discouraged about confessing the same sins over and over, or wondered how your confessions could be more fruitful, then you’ll love this book. It turns what many see as a tiresome obligation into a precious, longed-for encounter with the Lord.”
— Fr Michael Gaitley, MIC,
Director of The Association of Marian Helpers; Author, 33 Days to Morning Glory, Consoling the Heart of Jesus, and The ‘One Thing’ Is Three
“Vinny Flynn shows why confession of our sins is integral to evangelizing. Only when we recognize our sinfulness do we begin to appreciate the infinite goodness of the Lord. Only when we have experienced God’s forgiveness are we free to take up the mission of the Church. 7 Secrets of Confession gets to the heart of discipleship.”
— His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I.,
Archbishop of Chicago
