New App Brings Confession Tech to the Faithful
It’s not supposed to be a replacement for the more conventional confessional setup for observant Catholics, but at least this new iPhone app, “Confession: A Roman Catholic App,” has actually been blessed by a member of the clergy — and it’s only $1.99. –KA
WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO…
Worry not, faithful Catholics: The $1.99 application, for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, is not intended to replace the confessional. Instead, it’s designed to complement the act of confession, offering a “personal examination of conscience” (password-protected, of course) and a step-by-step guide to sin-confessing.
The app provides suggested acts of contrition and the “ability to add sins not listed in standard examination of conscience.”
