Well just when you think technology couldn’t improve our lives anymore, you come across this article (see link below). It appears the Catholic Church has signed off on a new iPhone app for Confessions that will allow those of us who are too busy to make confessions on the go. We can just imagine how this will help busy executives who simply don’t have time for confession.
“Mrs. Ah-Wiggins, please schedule me a meeting with the President for Tuesday and upload my confession for Wednesday.”
This sure would have helped Gina in her childhood. She hated going to confession. Of course, back then it was scary. You had to go into the box inside the velvet curtain. Gina was very nervous, and would often talk louder than required, something our brother was quick to point out when Gina met him back at the pew.
“And I shut the garage door on my brother’s leg, and swore at my sister…and,” recited our brother.
“How did you know that Bob? Could you hear me?” asked a horrified Gina.
“The whole church could hear you, you dummy!”
What do you think of this technological advance? Could virtual baptisms and marriages be on the horizon?
