As usual, an excellent reminder. But I comment to thank you for the link to the very good video. I have watched it before, and its testimony is both very moving and quite edifying.
My methodology to deal with such situations has been to confess at parishes that I don’t attend and to do the Confession kneeling on the floor facing away from the priest.
Also, I’ve stuck similar things to “Fear of looking foolish has kept me from going to Confession as soon as possible” at the top of my confession list. Confessing what is keeping one from going to confession (even if venial) really really helps as it is giving that disordered thought over to Christ for forgiveness and healing.
A friend once said – “ Aren’t you concerned that the priest recognizes your voice in the Confessional ? “
I’ve reached the place in life where I really don’t care.
I believe that Francis is considering allowing you to fax them in (he is little behind the times, but in his defense, it is the authentic way that the Spirit of Vatican II would dictate.) I could be mistaken about it, in the spirit of Vatican II, of course.
I just speak in my chest voice to not be recognized. Priests assume I’m a man and encourage me to consider the priesthood.
