The iPhone/iPad Application, featuring “Confession: A Roman Catholic App,” has been allegedly approved by an unnamed bishop of the Catholic Church, as reported by International technology sites, February 11, 2011.
The application is a pre-confession preparation gadget that Catholics can refer to when preparing for the Sacrament of Penance. The app contains a checklist of the Ten Commandments and other pertinent questions to determine what sins have been committed.
Pope Benedict XVI went public on January 24, 2011 to acknowledge the crucial role of social media sites in people’s lives. Pope Benedict approves of Facebook, but stressed that virtual relationships should not undermine the importance of face to face encounters.
Now, Catholic applications are created by enterprising people, like the iPulpit, which can help priests deliver their homilies and provide several significant, helpful features.
The recent iPad Confession application would be useful to the millions of Catholics worldwide, who want to be guided when in doubt of what transgressions to confess.
