WHAT ABOUT FACE TIME FOR THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE?
Canon Law and certainly sacramental theology has said (once the phone was invented) that a person cannot go to confession and receive absolution over the phone. They have to be physically present.
Now that we have The Jetsons' technology for face time on phones and computers, what about receiving absolution that way?
If not ordinarily, why not, but if not, what about in extraordinary situations where no priest is ever available for Confessions, like remote Alaska outposts?
Discuss on line or in person!
