Can’t you make an appointment for Confession? or just show up at the rectory and ask the priest to hear your confession?

C'mon you guys...You have to make an appointment with a man to get access to God??? What kind of God is that???

No, you can pray to God whenever. The Sacraments, however, are instituted by Christ Himself, and are ministered by His priests.

No. B-Chan wrote that the regularly scheduled confession time was not convenient for him. I was suggesting other ways he could go to confession. Receiving the Sacrament of Penance is not the same thing as getting "access to God."
