BENEDICT XVI ON THE SACRAMENT OF CONFESSION
Benedict’s letter with his confession is that God forgives all to those who love
much and for those who trust in themselves with the lord.
Benedict take the example of the passage in Luke's Gospel that presents the
woman who was a sinner and was forgiven (Luke 7:36-50).
The woman is a prostitute who wants forgiveness from Christ and she bathed
Jesus' feet with tears wiped them dry with her hair, kissed them and anointed
them with fragrant ointment which is very expensive and have a good smell.
