wait i dont mean to hurt my catholic faith nor our church but, i am just curious since we are living in a technoworld, how about having an online confession of course, a one on one with a priest via skype maybe in an enclosed room? how do you comment on this situation?
Beyond the security issue already pointed out, you would not be in the presence of the priest acting in persona christi to receive absolution. This distancing between yourself and your confessor would have to be harmful to reception of the sacrament.
If this were to be allowed (I am pretty sure it isn't), it would not be far to reconciliation by e-mail or confessing then playing a taped absolution or..... to simply confessing privately to God. If this were OK, then it would stand to reason that it would be likewise for other sacraments.
It will never happen (I hope).
