I have always heard that a person can go and speak to a priest in the Confessional even if they are not Catholic.:) Obviously, they cannot receive the Sacrament. All I know is that even if I were not Catholic, I would still go to Confession.

Hmm, I never thought of telling him that, I was thinking in terms of Sacrament. I’ll tell him.

Absolutely true. I have witnessed this happening at a retreat. The people who were non-Catholic were so moved by the process.

I saw an interview with priests at St. Pats in New York who said he has a couple of Jewish guys a week come in. That of course he couldn’t grant them absolution, but hey! The absolution comes from God not from the Priest, it’s just through the offices of the Priest that it is delivered.
