Confession Quotations

Confession is always weakness. The grave soul keeps its own secrets, and takes its own punishment in silence.
Dorothy Dix

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time.
Karl Marx

A confession has to be part of your new life.

Sacrifice, discipline and prayer are essential. We gain strength through God's word. We receive grace from the sacrament. And when we fumble due to sin - and it's gonna happen - confession puts us back on the field.
Lou Holtz
