About this Episode
Confession can be a real stumbling block to so many both outside and inside the Church. But on this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn gives us a new way to think about Confession. He shares his own struggles with the sacrament and how, through the Bible and through personal experience, he came to embrace the need for the healing of Reconciliation.
The sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion are intimately connected. The Eucharist in Scripture unlocks the meaning of covenant, sacrifice, and sacrament as understood in the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation, which also sheds light on the purpose of Confession.
