Who forgives priests sins?


#1

Hi I would like to know, since the laity recieve forgiveness of sins through confession to a priest, how does the priest have his sins forgiven, and how often?


#2

From another priest. How often depends on the priest. JPII had a confessor and reportedly did it every day.


#3

Ok great. All I needed to know. I presume this is done in spare time then?


#4

Priests are allowed free time, they even get a day off and get vacations.


#5

JPII confessed once a week. I believe his confessor was a Jesuit priest.


#6

Yes, a priest confesses his sins to another priest.

Of course, we all know the answer to the title of the thread…

Who forgives priests sins?

The Lord. :wink:
