British clergy see rise in Confessions
CWN - September 03, 2013
Catholic priests in England and Wales have noticed a distinct increase in the number of people coming to Confession, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Some priests attributed the greater use of the sacrament to the personal impact of Pope Francis. Others said it might reflect a heightened willingness to deal openly with personal failings, or the wider use of informal methods—including computer programs—of preparing for Confession.
