Constant confession: Churches extend their hours as sinners unload their guilt ahead of Easter
If there is a time for unloading guilt, it is the time ahead of Easter when the world’s Christians remember Jesus dying on the cross for their sins. What better way to meet the need for penitence than to keep the confession booth in high rotation all day? For the first time, the Archdiocese of Toronto and the Archdiocese of Edmonton are inviting sinners to confess during extended church hours on Wednesday, March 6, with many open 12 hours.

How can a priest last that long? The Post’s Sarah Boesveld asked Father Jim Corrigan of St. Theresa’s Parish, one of the largest and most diverse in Edmonton.

Q: So you’re advertising the all-day confession by saying ‘Sinners Wanted.’

A: Yeah, it’s a bit of a catchy sign. At my parish, the sign we put up said ‘Saints and Sinners confession is on Wednesday, March 6.’ ...

Frank,- The Scripture remains true. But what if your application of your understanding of the good fruit / bad fruit analogy brings forth bad fruit?

Communism is merely a method for pirating of everyones wealth by well-armed bandits disguised as saviors/protectors of the workers. As for its having been brought down, it hasn't happened.
Odd that it has not happened then. Mere bandits are easy to defeat, no matter how well armed and disguised. The prisons are full of them.

Bandits come and go. Worldly kingdoms and empires and republics rise and fall. Since communism is still with us, it is evident that communism has much more to it than you think.

May God raise up many who truly have a heart to reach these people with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only saviour of sinners.

Communism is merely a method for pirating of everyones wealth by well-armed bandits disguised as saviors/protectors of the workers. As for its having been brought down, it hasn't happened. The Soviet Union as a political entity was brought down, primarily because it couldn't keep up economically. Communism on the other hand, is alive in many places. We even have a few dabblers in the stupidity of utopian socialism here.

I did not address the virtue or otherwise of such an action.
My use of the word "synthesis" demonstrated my complete agreement with you that they absorb just about every abominable thing into their manmade religion.
Finally I demonstrated my view that it is the RCC that is THE antichrist system and not any other system that has been accused of it such as Communism.

Thanks for the clarification. We agree on the above. This forum is sometimes rather difficult to explain things clearly. I am driven by the good fruit/bad fruit analogy and my firm belief that Satan will do nothing to harm his cause; regardless of how it looks to the rest of us. Perhaps I am overly sensitive to the RCC issue since I understand their apostasy so well. Most people in the U.S. don't really understand how the RCC is practiced in those far away places and how much harm they cause and have caused.

Poland was not one of the countries I visited. But, in Romania, Hungary, and in the Bosnia area, what I said was true to the best of my knowledge.

You asked me how I knew of the RCC's key role in the demise of Communism (given your claim to first hand on the ground knowledge in eastern Europe). I responded likewise to inform you that I also have my own first hand knowledge. If there was a more constructive approach on these forums I would have been more than willing to provide specific information concerning the conduct of the Polish Communist government at the time in direct response to the power of the RCC.

Frank - I trust you will reconsider your shameful comment. You present no evidence of compromise or pragmatism, but merely ally yourself with defective strawman argumentation. Now, where in the world did you get that from?
Okay, fair enough. If the RCC is not a legitimate expression of the Christian faith, then it can't bear Christian fruit. So, if your premise was correct, namely that they "might have" brought down communism, you labeled that as a virtuous act. In other words, an act of bearing Christian fruit. Now Christ said that a bad tree can't bear good fruit and a good tree can't bear bad fruit. What I was trying to say was communism and nazism were both evil; therefore it wouldn't make any difference which one of these the RCC hindered or helped.

Hope that at least clarifies my thoughts. If you meant what you said; you are guilty of pragmatism and/or compromise, perhaps under the guise of some type of greater good that I simply don't adhere to. Behind my thoughts is this simple truth; the RCC is Satan's church.

Mike, what an excellent comment! This fellow obviously adheres to unhealthy pragmatism and/or compromise. Well said. If you look at some of my earlier comments on this thread, that is what I was saying. You just said it better.

Ah, getting back to sin, which is one the reasons for confessions,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
Valuable lessons for all believers from this record
of the Scriptures include:
1. Sins of others are always more clear than our
own.
2. When believers sin, we sin in the face of God's
goodness and grace.
3. When we sin we despise the Lord.
4. We must deal with sin as sin.
5. Forgiveness doesn't cancel all the consequences
from our sin.
6. Alternatives to God's Word are still sin.
7. True repentance accepts the consequences.
8. Forgiven, we go on - by God's grace.
excerpt from the summary for,
Dealing with Sin
. Remember The Lord Desires Repentance for All and you can't absolution of sin from a Romish priest. The ISBE has a reasonably good commentary on the various reasons for Confession, and the one to a man of God would be one of those reasons, it should never be to a Romish priest, The Scandal of the Catholic Priesthood. :aler
