How stupid

In my opinion, this is stupid. If you have gone to at least one catholic confession, you know the process. It hasn't changed in probably hundreds of years.

NEW YORK, - An iPhone app aimed at helping Catholics through confession and encouraging lapsed followers back to the faith has been sanctioned by the Catholic Church in the United States.

Confession: A Roman Catholic app, thought to be the first to be approved by a church authority, walks Catholics through the sacrament and contains what the company behind the program describes as a “personalized examination of conscience for each user”.

“Our desire is to invite Catholics to engage in their faith through digital technology,” said Patrick Leinen of the three-man company Little iApps, based in South Bend, Indiana.

“Taking to heart Pope Benedict XVI’s message from last years’ World Communications Address, our goal with this project is to offer a digital application that is truly ‘new media at the service of the word.”

Pope Benedict XVI’s World Communications Address on January 24 emphasized the importance of a Christian presence in the digital world.

The firm said the content of the app was developed with the help of Reverend Thomas Weinandy of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Reverend Dan Scheidt, pastor of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Mishawaka, Indiana.

The app is not designed to replace going to confession but to help Catholics through the act, which generally involves admitting sins to a priest in a confessional booth. Catholics still must go to a priest for absolution.

I'm not Catholic so I don't care at all, but I'm sure that when they invented the printing press and bibles no longer needed to be copied by hand that some people question why they were doing things differently. It turned out OK.

Hebrews 4:14-16

Quote:
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, [fn] Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
I think they figured out a solution to this about 400 years ago. It was called the reformation. We need no priest to Absolve us because that is what Christ did for us. We only need to talk to him about it. We can also share with fellow believers our pains and struggles, but we don't HAVE to. Christ Crucified is enough for me. If we HAVE to go through a priest then why didn't they just stick with the "Old ways" of doing things. Then Christ wouldn't have had to die on the cross.
