In 1813, a case of stolen goods led to the legal protection of the seal of the confessional in American law. Tom and Noelle Crowe talk about the story of Fr. Anthony Kohlmann, S.J., who refused to break the sacred trust he held in Confession even under threat of prison, and the Protestant officials who upheld Catholics’ rights.
