Confession Fr. Larry Richards
Published on Apr 10, 2012
Based upon his proven and powerful parish mission presentation, Fr. Larry Richards’ talk on Confession has become the #1 talk in North America dealing with one of the Catholic Faith’s most misunderstood Sacraments. He is riveting, honest, very human, often touchingly gentle, and yes, even humorous, and provides listeners with hope for a closer, healing relationship with Jesus Christ. I re-evaluated my entire way of living because it made me realize that I was not as close to God as I thought!
