We recently saw from the Congregation for Clergy a guide for confessors along with an examination of conscience for the confessor himself.
While sorting through some things I ran across a fascinating old confessional aid for priests. It is an examination of conscience for the penitents to be applied by priests to the penitents when they don’t have a common language between them.
This little book, breast-pocket size, contains lists of questions translated into many languages a confessor can use to quiz a penitent so that he can receive the confession.
Regrettably, the outside veneer on the binding is separated.
Here are some shots of pages.
Here is the Latin. Click for larger.
Note that the examine includes adverbs and question words for how many times a sin was committed. It is important to confess your sins in both kind and number!
The English version.
I am not sure that the version in Irish would do me much good, truth to tell.
Yes, it has all the major European languages, as well as a few others.
Here is Bohemian. Note the small page used by the priest to match the questions up with the Latin.
In any event, I thought you would be interested to see this.
