Vatican Clarification on Confession App

I saw this clarification piece on Zenit, but it seemed pretty clear to me that “Confession: A Roman Catholic App” wasn’t like those nutty pretenders.

Patrick Leinen, developer:

This app is intended to help a person prepare for the sacrament of confession. It is not intended to function as a replacement for confession!

Anyone downloading the app would know that. I would hope.

Here is a brief abc news clip. They knew it was just assistance for going to a priest. Apologies that you have to wait through a 30-second commercial to hear a 42-second piece. Too bad the off-screen dudes were laughing themselves off over this. The woman news anchor chides them, though. Good for her.
