Bless me father and recycle my sins
Have you forgotten to recycle any newspapers or cans recently? Feeling guilty because you neglected to carbon offset your flight to somewhere, anywhere, this summer?
The Roman Catholic Church is at hand with a new line in "green confessions" to help eco-sinners to find forgiveness from God.
Dom Anthony Sutch, a Benedictine monk, will be at Waveney Greenpeace festival in Suffolk this weekend to hear eco-confessions in what is thought to be the first dedicated priestly confessional booth of its kind.
Vested in a green chasuble-style garment made from recycled curtains, and in a booth constructed of recycled doors, he will hear the sins of those who have not recycled the things they ought to have done and who have consumed the things they believe they ought not to have done.
