First came the iPod, then the iPhone. Now there’s iPrayer.

Good news the Roman Catholic church has approved an app for people who have broken down trust. Sinners who are too busy to get to church can now confess online.

According to the article below the application invites users to examine their consciences and confess to their sins. But it won’t replace the old-school booth. The app, which costs $1.99, just goes through the motions of confession, but church goers must see a priest for absolution. The Vatican has made major steps to embrace the 21st century. Just last month, Pope Benedict XVI gave his blessing to social networking, declaring, “I would like then to invite Christians, confidently and with an informed and responsible creativity, to join the network of relationships which the digital era has made possible.” Read more about the article here.

From a trust perspective I wonder what you think about online confessions. Do you go to confession? Do you have concerns about who is reading these confessions and where they are being stored etc. or do you trust the church with some of your most private information? Vote on it here…
