You win. I was raised Catholic. I'm glad I never saw that back then before confession and I'm glad I never go now. It's scary enough with a person in there. Take my upvote. Edit Leeeeroy!


LeeroyM OP t1_j6l3zt8 wrote

I was raised Catholic too, in fact I was an altar boy in rural Ireland in the 90's. A lot of my work has Catholic references actually.


keenweasel74 t1_j6l87bq wrote

My best friend was an alter boy. I was too shy as a boy to go up in front of people. My wife doesn't believe me. I'm the total opposite now.


dwpea66 t1_j6lqnzf wrote

I understand this. I did 13 years of Catholic school as a boy, and all it left me with was a complete lack of faith and fear of Catholic imagery.

The church really left it’s mark on us, great work btw this terrified me and we come from the exact same background too


Mackheath1 t1_j6nbebf wrote

Lutheran, here. We don't do this. What goes on in those booth things? Do you really tell them things you've done 'wrong' or do you just pray with them or is it like light therapy or something?

I know I can look it up, but I'd like to get an insider's take if you feel comfortable sharing.


keenweasel74 t1_j6nimbq wrote

It's kind of like a financial transaction. You confess your sins, all you've done wrong since last confession. The priest then gives you your penance. Basically how many of each different prayer you have to recite. You get out of the box. He stays in the box for the next person. You go home and say the prayers and you are by Catholic teaching then "clean" again. Rinse and repeat next Sunday. It was weird. Edit: Most kids when I was still going to the catholic church just lied in confession and we never said the prayers. My observation of many Catholic adults I know is they do the same.

"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl." Says an altar boy at confession.

The priest asks, "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?"

"Yes, Father, it is."

"And who was the girl you were with?"

"I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."

"Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?"

"I cannot say."

"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"

"I'll never tell."

"Was it Nina Capelli?"

"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."

"Was it Cathy Piriano?"

"My lips are sealed."

"Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?"

"Please, Father, I cannot tell you."

The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself."

Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?"

"Four months vacation and five good leads!"

To add:

There once was a bishop from Birmingham

Who’d deflower young girls while confirming ‘em

As they knelt on the hassock

He lifted his cassock

And slipped his episcopal worm in ‘em

There is a scene where you go into a confessional and talk to a demony guy wearing a hat. You can only see his silhouette.

Is it just me or does everyone get the confession words wrong? I grew up Catholic and it's "bless me father" not "forgive."

Actually if you dig this then checkout Midnight Mass on Netflix.

If you want to fully enjoy the reveals, do NOT read too far into that article for spoilers. This is a very good horror/thriller mini-series set in a small New England fishing town with one catholic diocese and then . . . Supernatural stuff happens.

jewish-nonjewish t1_j6m60pa wrote

The idea that an unholy creature may be able to enter a holy place implies that place wasn't holy to begin with. Or a modicum of other things such as but not limited to: the unholy creature in question is strong enough to resist such powers, God never existed in the first place and it's only the demons we ourselves create that are real, or that God was so disappointed by this church that he just abandoned that place and left everyone to die. Which isn't unlike him.


Painting_Agency t1_j6mlbsz wrote

> that place wasn't holy to begin with.

Churches become de-consecrated the moment a clergy member first commits a mortal sin in them. Almost no churches actually provide refuge from demonic entities, for this reason.

A guy walks into a church and enters a confessional, a priest then enters as well. The man says, "Forgive me father for I have sinned, while on a skiing trip I saw my boss while skiing down the mountain. I had a mask and goggles on so he didn't recognize me, so I went over and pushed him down a hill and he broke his arm in three places." The priest then says, "You've confessed this 4 times already." The man then says , "I know, I just like talking about it."
