Developer of confession iPhone app welcomes Vatican statement
Catholic World News - February 10, 2011
Patrick Leinen, the developer of an iPhone application designed to help people prepare for the confession, welcomed a reminder by Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi that the sacrament requires oral confession to a priest.
“This app is intended to help a person prepare for the sacrament of confession,” said Leinen. “It is not intended to function as a replacement for confession!”
