Man Bites Dog Story

From our 'man bites dog' file of unusual news items, a downtown parish has the problem of too many people wanting to go to Confession. The pastor writes:
After much thought and prayer I have decided to make a commentary on the Sacrament of Confession. The Dominican friars make a valiant effort of being available for the Sacrament of Confession...I recommend a monthly confession unless you are in the state of mortal sin. Most venial sins simply need a perfect Act of Contrition or the reception of Holy Communion.
