Confessions

Catholics are expected to confess their sins regularly to a priest, who sits in a box-like structure called a confessional. The priest acts as an intermediary between God and the sinner, and pronounces God's willingness to forgive. The sinner may be asked to perform a penance - an action to show that they are truly sorry for their sin.
