Priests Create Confession App

Friday, January 28, 2011

Readers may recall a recent post about the offensive Penance App that came out in December that makes a mockery of the Church.

Well, iPhone users now have a Church-approved App that could actually be beneficial to their soul – Confession: A Roman Catholic App – for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

That - is ridiculous.

What's next - Divine Liturgy by conference call?

Take-out Eucharist?

Why even go to Church these days?

All we're doing is burning un-necessary fuel to get there; increasing our 'carbon footprint' and contributing further to global warming!

(Yes, that is sarcasm.)

Again... things like this are utterly ridiculous!

Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.

Did you read the article? All the App provides is "a personalized, password protected, examination of conscience and a step-by-step guide to the Sacrament." It does NOT provide e-confession. One must still a priest in person for confession.

I agree, it is like a prayerbook app, which if it doesn't exist for either Catholics or Orthodox, it surely will do so in the near future. Books themselves are becoming electronic. I suspect we will have to adapt to changing technology just as our ancestors did with inventions such as the printing press, the radio or television.
