Practical Instruction for New Confessors
by Fr. Philip M. Savatori, S.J.
Edited by Fr. Anthony Ballerini, S.J.
and Translated from the Italian by William Hutch, D.D.
Divided into two parts, the first part consists of a series of instructions and exhortations to be addressed to various classes of penitents, in order to dispose them to receive absolution worthily. The second part lays down, and justifies by most convincing arguments, the true system to be followed by a Confessor, when he doubts whether his penitent is sufficiently disposed to receive absolution. It will be extremely useful to set forth from the very page the aim and object of this little work. The object is to facilitate the giving of absolution.
