I am almost finished reading one of her books on the Sacrament of Confession called 'Forgive Us Our Trespasses.' The book is fantastic and is a great book to read before going to confession. She covers all of the theology of the Sacrament and how it fits into the spiritual life. You will earn of the seriousness of sin, how God views sin, how to prepare for Confession by examining your conscience how to make a good confession and how to live after making a good confession. The book clocks in at 103 pages so it can be read and digested in a minimal amount of time. The information in it however is priceless in helping you save your soul. If you have not gone to confession lately, do not put it off. Get this book, read it and then get yourself to the nearest Catholic Church. I look forward to reading more of her books, which I will post on in the near future.
From the website.
Mother Loyola's work on the subject of Confession is not merely groundbreaking, but seems to form one of the most crucial of her strengths, given that the Sacrament of Penance has always been the most avoidable and avoided of all; most Catholics express a distaste for it akin to torment. For her readers, however, such angst is inconceivable, as she does not merely help to remove all fear and discomfort associated with the Confessional; she also enkindles a deep sense of appreciation for the gift of the sacrament. This, in turn, fosters an eager anticipation of the grace it confers. Those who make use of Forgive us our Trespasses--whether children or adults--will find themselves seeking this healing Sacrament with regularity.
"Catholic literature, doctrinal and devotional, owes a great deal to Mother Mary Loyola. There is a certain wholesomeness, naturalness, geniality about her spirituality that at once wins a place in the Catholic heart for whatever she writes."
--The Ecclesiastical Review, January 1918
