Open to correction like anyone else

“In her voyage across the ocean of this world, the Church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life’s different stresses. Our duty is not to abandon ship but to keep her on course”. – St. Boniface (saint of the day)
Does every priest offer proper correction in the confessional? Unfortunately, no. But, because priests act in the person of Christ in the Sacrament of Confession, the chances are very good that it is Christ who is offering the correction. And, if it’s Christ offering correction, then it’s what the person needs to hear, and will lead to his peace.
