Italian Journalist Violates Sanctity of the Confessional

The journalist Ersilio Mattioni of the Italian monthly Millennium went to confession in Milan area, faking a faithful who worries about the radical stances of Pope Francis, in order to deceive the confessors and to publish their words. In an article Mattioni reported that he was told, that Francis is not infallible any time he opens his mouth or that a public kiss between two homosexuals is disgusting.

La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana spoke with one of Mattioni's victims, Father Armando Bosani of Vanzaghello who could not remember Mattioni's fake confession, "There are so many who come to confession and express loss and perplexity in front of this pontificate, even from outside the parish. It is impossible that I could remember one in particular..."

The sacrament of confession is not a forum to talk about the shortcomings of others but to reflect upon one's sins. A good priest would see through this and turn the spotlight back on the penitent.
