Teens to confess their sins to Pope Benedict XVI
God is always on tap to hear believers repent but for Catholics, it's the Sacrament of Reconciliation -- the current lingo for confession to a priest -- that lifts the burdens of sin.

Now a handful of select young Catholic will get to tell their sins to the top guy: Pope Benedict XVI himself will hear confessions.

According to CathNews, he'll guide their repentance as part of the celebration of World Youth Day next month in Madrid -- and give a publicity boost to the Church's latest efforts to encourage people to seek the sacraments. ...

"As every man is bound to make private confession of his sins to God, praying for the pardon thereof,[a] upon which, and the forsaking of them, he shall find mercy;[b] so he that scandalizeth his brother, or the Church of Christ, ought to be willing, by a private or public confession and sorrow for his sin, to declare his repentance to those that are offended,[c] who are thereupon to be reconciled to him, and in love to receive him.[d]

Exactly right.

If you don't have an established confession process as we have in the Church, what is your confession process?

How exactly do you confess each of your sins? Do you make a written list? Do you try to remember all of them from day-to-day, week-to-week? Do you admit them to another? Do you have a particular prayer time when you speak them, one-by-one, to Christ?

Does it matter if you don't have a confession process and you share with God whenever you remember one?

Mike of N.Y., all too true about an incomplete reformation. Oh, confessions, as far as any Catholic Sacraments, e.g., URL=http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?ArtKey=atherton8>The Confessional, there's absolutely no efficacy in them. If you confess to Christ, all can be forgiven, All Who Call Upon the Lord Will Be Saved and Prayer confessing to a Catholic priest, you only add to your sins.

Not clinging to "old chains," he's just reading his Bible:

Jesus to His Disciples: "If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

-John 20:23

Dr. R.C. Sproul (a Calvinist theologian) writes about confession:
“Speaking as a Protestant, I think something very precious has been lost in the Protestant world in our ceasing the confessional practice. I have yet to meet a Christian who does not yearn to hear ‘your sins are forgiven.’ And I think that authority, as the Roman Catholic Church believes, was indeed given to the church. That’s why even in Protestant churches we have ministers stand up and giving the assurance of pardon. People need the assurance that the sins they have confessed have indeed been forgiven ...
"I’ve talked to psychiatrists who say that the biggest burden in terms of mental illness of people in the United States is the burden of unresolved guilt. A psychiatrist said to me, "Most people who come to see me need a priest more than they need a psychiatrist.”
Dr. R.C. Sproul Sr., Now That’s a Good Question, page 360 - 361.
Some Calivinists do seem to cling to the old chains. Inadequate reformation, I suppose.
