Patrick Coffin: Confession Under Attack

patrick coffin
The Patrick Coffin Show podcast features weekly interviews with A-list influencers and outliers in the effort to recover the Judeo-Christian roots of the culture. Patrick is the Canadian-born former host of Catholic Answers Live, and he has raving fans around the world. He injects these fascinating interviews with his own distinctive blend of depth and levity. If you’re tired of politically correct media speak, you want to see God back in the public square, and you’re not allergic to having a laugh, this is the place to be.
Confession
Some features of the Catholic Faith look weird to outsiders, including Christian outsiders. Things like transubstantiation — the belief that the Host and the wine are actually changed into the body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ, or the bodily Assumption of Mary into heaven.
And…..confession of sins to a priest.
THAT does NOT compute for some people—say, for tens of millions.
For guilty parties, like you and me, Confession is the exact opposite of a secular court. The judge in open court pronounces you guilty.
Down comes the gavel, you get punished, and everyone hears about it on the news.
Where is Confession in the Bible? See:
Is 53:5 Numbers 5:5-10 John 20:21-23: James 5:14-16 Matthew 19:10-12 1 Cor 7
and The Didache, St Ambrose, Fourth Lateran Council (1215) Canon 21.
Among other things, celibacy lived out generously and in union with Christ, the High Priest is THE ANTIDOTE to the abuse crisis.
