Anglican leader extols practice of Confession

Catholic World News - October 10, 2013

The Archbishop of Canterbury has endorsed Confession, saying that the sacrament is “enormously powerful.”

Speaking to an ecumenical audience about divisions among Christians, the leader of the world’s Anglican communion said that he has come to appreciate the value of Confession. Dr. Justin Welby—who has spoken in the past about the importance of the Catholic tradition, and has a Catholic priest as his own spiritual director—recommended that Anglicans make more frequent use of opportunities for confession.
