Confession in the Digital Age
We all know that apps are great. They make life so much easier if you have an iPhone or Android device. Some apps can make you more organized and some are just fun. One of the newest and now more popular apps now gives Catholics a way to make Confession less intimidating.
The app is called Confession: A Roman Catholic App, and is designed to take the intimidation out of Confession. Don’t be confused, the Vatican says this isn’t a substitute for going to Confession but I think it could help some people out there.
More and more, Churches are turning to the internet to get their message out and I think it’s a good thing as well as being something that’s necessary. At the same time though, apps and the internet aren’t a good substitute for personal relationships. It’s all of our jobs to balance the two out.
