Confession Time

Salve Regina posted this cool website where you can go to confession online. Ok, so it's not real confession, but it's still fun to play with!

It has these great drop down menus to choose from. Lets see, I've killed someone, premeditated, for the occult sacrifice of course, gluttony, and "borrowed" my roommates milk.

Venial Sins
Recite 184 Hail Marys and 8 Our Fathers.

Mortal Sins
Consider the implications of what you have done. You must take all steps possible to undo what has been done, and make right what you have done wrong.

You should fast for a total of 2 weeks. If this is too much to do at once due to the length of the fast, or infirmity, it is acceptable to break a fast into smaller sections. If you are unsure how long it is safe to fast for, consult a doctor.If your sin also broke the law of the land in which you live, you must confess to the authorities.

I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

I'd better start praying and stop eating...

On a more serious note, even though this type of confession would never be approved by the church, because it's not valid. The "confessional" does have a pretty good examination of conscious - at least it's better than the ones they have available at the church. Also, they have a virtual rosary, which could be used as a teaching tool.

OH, and they also have this great poem to celebrate the election of his holiness Pope Benedict XVI. It brought tears to my eyes!
