Yesterday, I posted about Confession. However today, I find a need to clarify a statement I
wrote. I was reading Father Z, this morning, and he makes a distinction that is important enough for me to call attention to:
The priest is there not as a “spiritual counsellor” (a phrase I – unfortunately – have seen used to “advertise” confession in another parish), but as the representative of Christ.
As Aquinas would say, "Distinctions are important."
