New from LA: concelebrated confessions!

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 26, 2005

Hey, reconciliation fans, check out the latest in the lengthening series of sacramental privileges fortuitously discovered by the attorneys theologians employed in the defense of Cardinal Roger Mahony:

[Mahony lawyer Donald] Woods said he hoped a higher court would take a different view of the priest-penitent privilege and allow three-way communications between the bishop, his vicar and an accused priest to fall within it. "It's like having two priests in the confessional instead of one," he said.

Must get crowded, surely?

    Isn't that the kind of close contact between priests that got us in this mess in the first place?
