The Benefits of a Father Confessor
Is temptation the same as committing the sin? Archimandrite Christodoulos (Papadeas), the IEROKYRIX (Preacher/Confessor) of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta, talks with Fr. Chris and answers this question and many more, such as: Do you know how to find a spiritual father?, Do we have to confess everything?, and How do we confess our sins? This interview could open you heart to the gift of forgiveness and possibly inspire a desire to be relieved of your burdens through the holy sacrament of confession.
