The solemn obligation of keeping secret all sins confessed in a sacramental confession and anything else made known by the penitent in connection therewith, the manifestation of which might be obnoxious to him or might render the sacrament of Penance odious. This obligation arises from the natural law, the positive law of Christ, and the law of the Church. It binds the confessor and any other person whco may discover what has been told in confession. Under no circumstances is it allowed to reveal the matter of another's confession, unless the penitent freely gives permission. Confessors are enjoined not to speak of what happens in the confessional even in a general manner, even though they do not mention the time, place, or other circumstances connected with it.
