I was listening to a podcast from some Anglican priests in the APA. They seem very Catholic to me but I like the podcasts. They mentioned mortal sin in there. That is a Catholic concept not really found anywhere besides in the Catholic Church. After talking with them over facebook they did not seem to think that the general confession and absolution would work with mortal sins unless there was perfect contrition. So basically it seems like they don't put a lot of stock in the general confession and absolution because even Catholics believe that you don't have to go to confession if you have perfect contrition. What does everyone else think?
