The photo below is not a photo of our confessions as I did not ask anyone to photograph those going to Confession. However, it was crazy last night.
We no longer do a Liturgical Penance Service. At 6pm I introduced the priests and their stations. Including our parochial vicar and I, there were five priests hearing confessions.
As I mentioned, we started at 6 pm and with five of us, we all finished by 8:45 PM.
That’s two hours and 45 minutes with five priests. Some times the old ways are better. The God of surprises has shown us that it is true. But many old people don’t like the old ways unless these are from the 1960’s!
