Father Dave talks to a listener about two very interesting questions regarding confession. The first is about the concept of certain standardized amounts of penance for certain sins. The second question (one that we get a lot) delves into the very nature of the Catholic form of reconciliation: why do I need the priest at all? Why can't I just confess my sins to God? (Originally aired: 01/29/10.

Many of our listeners often have questions about annulment.  Many Catholics considering annulments often find themselves with more questions than answers.  To help us better understand the process, Father Dave talks with canon lawyer and author, Jacqui Rapp.  Jacqui is currently an independent canonical consultant and is also an Assessor, Judge and Defender of the Bond for several US Dioceses. Recently, with the help of Pete Vere, Jacqui co-wrote Annulment: 100 Questions and Answers for Catholics.
