Just read the news on BBC about the iPhone/iPad application developed for those who want to prepare thoroughly for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The link to the article is here. I can imagine how much confusion this app will stir especially among those who are not Catholics or are Catholics who do not go to confession often. They may think this application will substitute the Sacrament of Reconciliation. I guess pastors should be ready to inform properly on this issue as the hot topic of old - that of the validity of confessions through the internet or phone conversation may rise up again and cause a lot of chaos.
