Modeled on the practice of a life confession St. Ignatius made early in his conversion, The Whole Life Confession is a step-by-step four week process with spiritual exercises for each day. It culminates in the grace-filled experience of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Whole-Life Confession is a very dynamic and holistic method that helps you to integrate your spiritual, intellectual and psychological/emotional history. Those who have completed it have been amazed how it allowed them to "see their whole life" as if for the first time. Done any time of year, individually or with a faith community, your life will be changed by learning how to bring your entire life's history--your story-- to Christ in this intensely holistic, deeply personal and healing method of Reconciliation.
"The Whole-Life Confession is the perfect Lenten or Advent program to draw lay faithful and priest alike into a personal encounter with God's mercy in Jesus. It will change the way you relate with Jesus and how you pray!"
Most Rev. Michael C. Barber S.J., Bishop of Oakland
"We are currently using this book in my parish as a Lenten exercise. It is a helpful and deeply personal journey into self understanding, forgiveness and mercy. For Catholics it will change the practice of confession into a gateway to healing, freedom and mercy. Rather than 'reading' this book, it should be a daily process of following each exercise. It's an invitation to a fuller life!"
"A great devotion for Lent and Advent, helping to clear the clutter of the soul, and jump start the spiritual life."
