The words of the Consecration show that Christ can be said to have died for Confession, for the forgiveness of sins. This power to “forgive or retain sins” was given to the Apostles, each an ALTER CHRISTUS, “another Christ.” Jesus gave all the divine power and authority He received from the Father to Peter and the Apostles. God works through men, and has since Adam’s creation. “God is glorified in His saints.” Thank God, and “confess ye your sins one to the other,” i.e., face-to-face to a priest.
