One of the most helpful, enlightening, and heartfelt videos I've seen on Confession and God's Mercy is Embraced in Mercy: The Rite Explained. If you're been away from the Sacrament of Reconciliation for awhile, or if you just want to gain a fresh perspective on this sacrament, you don't want to miss this half-hour video. Hear about Confession from the viewpoints of clergy, Catholic speakers, and lay persons.
