Catholic Church Blesses iPhone Confession App

Hugh Pickens writes (1984118) writes "Reuters reports that the Catholic Church has sanctioned an iPhone app aimed at helping Catholics through confession and encouraging lapsed followers back to the faith. 'Confession,' thought to be the first to be approved by a church authority, walks Catholics through the sacrament and contains what the company behind the program describes as a "personalized examination of conscience for each user." The app is not designed to replace going to confession but to help Catholics through the act, which generally involves admitting sins to a priest in a confessional booth. Catholics still must go to a priest for absolution. "Our desire is to invite Catholics to engage in their faith through digital technology," says developer Patrick Leinen."
