Catholic Church Allows New iPhone App: The confession Application

confession app

Seemingly,  Catholic Church wants us to have confession, so much that it has allowed a new iPhone app.

You can now have your  Confession through  a  Roman Catholic App, available through iTunes for $1.99.

However, the new app doesn’t replace traditional confession. You still need  to go to a priest for absolution. The app simply tries to make confession more accessible.

A spokesman from the company that designed it said, "Our desire is to invite Catholics to engage in their faith through digital technology."

He goes on to quote Pope Benedict XVI’s message from last years’ World Communications Address, in which the pope encouraged Christians to interact with the digital world in service of the faith.
