The Chicago Tribune had an article today about the decline of "confession" as an institutional practice. Fewer and fewer Catholics show up to confess their sins in person to a priest.
But now they can do it on the web, at absolution-online.com.
I tried it for nostalgia value, confessing to very minor greed, and was told to say 8 Hail Marys and 2 Our Fathers.
That may sound like a lot of praying to you, but due to early training, I can say those prayers faster than I can think.
My penance for minor greed
Can be uttered with major speed.
