< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4   A5  

We must now consider the effect of confession: under which head there are five points of inquiry:

A1 Whether confession delivers one from the death of sin?

A2 Whether confession delivers one in any way from punishment?

A3 Whether confession opens Paradise to us?

A4 Whether confession gives hope of salvation?

A5 Whether a general confession blots out mortal sins that one has forgotten?
