Do the clergy go to confession?


#1

Is confession only for the laity? If the clergy do confess, whom does the Pope confess to?


#2

Confession is for everyone, including the clergy. The Pope confesses to any priest he wishes, just like everyone else. As I said in a recent Q&A, in the confessional a priest (and a pope) is just another penitent.
