Need to find confession nearby at the drop of a dime? There's an app for that.
The Archdiocese of Saint Andrews and Edinburgh announced last month at St. Peter's Square the first ever GPS-powered confession finder that uses technology to connect individuals with the closest confession and Mass times.
"This is a little bit of smart technology that could make a big impact on how the Catholic Church brings the mercy of God and the joy of the Gospel to our contemporary world," Archbishop Leo Cushley of Saint Andrews and Edinburgh stated, according to the Telegraph.
"The idea was really inspired by the Holy Father himself. He said to be imaginative about what to do for the Holy Year of Mercy," Archbishop Cushley told Vatican Radio.
