I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment some questions about guardians angels. And what jesus said about guardians angels?
Woah there you are running way ahead of yourself here. One question at a time please, and you need to consider who you are asking as there are different theological traditons under the heading "Christian".

comment What makes a confession sacramental?
This is all perfectly good content, but I think you missed the main point of my question. This post is hung up on the Catholic definition on "confession" as a sacrament, but it doesn't touch on the ordinary English definition, what the status of a revelation made during an ordinary social chat with a priest would be or what the initiation procedure is that officially makes instantiates the protected official act of confession.

comment What makes a confession sacramental?
@FMShyanguya This question accurately reflects my (lack of) understanding of the issue. That's what makes it a question. What you suggest sounds like an answer, not an edit.

removed two parapraphs: the first because it is totally inapropriate to preach at or deride other users of the site and the other because it was a bout a verse that was not part of the question nor did show it was connected to the subject of the question
