Why must you tell the priest how long it has been since your last Confession?
Where did the process of Confession come from or the history behind it? Like who said, "This is how Confession is going to go, one walks in says, “Forgive me Father for I have sinned, it has been…since my last Confession.” etc.
Why are the confessionals in a closet like structure? I know at my Church they are not like that anymore but I was just curious.
Thanks in advance
