Ապաշխարություն, մաս 2րդ

There are two types of confession distinguished in the Armenian Church -- individual and collective. Every believer has the freedom to choose his/her priest to confess to. According to the canon of the Armenian Church, the priest who makes the secret communicated by the confessor public, shall be liable to a most strict punishment.
How does the confession and forgiveness of sins progress, why only the ordained priest has the right to bestow forgiveness of sins, can penitence contribute to the individual and public well-fare?
The meaning of confession is explained by Father VardanNavasardyan.
