Why Confession is a Good Thing

Once in a while Mark Shea has something really good on his blog. Here is one that I think makes alot of sense. It is a clip from ER that shows that when it comes right down to it and someone is knocking on death's door they really, really want to know that they are forgiven. No amount of pius platitudes or feel good religion can compare to hearing a priest say "I absolve you of your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Check out the clip:

That's sort of 'damming him with faint praise' isn't it?

Anyone know the conclusion to this storyline?
