It’s the same everywhere. Fortunately. It was so in Amsterdam, and in Madrid. And so it is also here. When people see a priest sitting in the corner, wearing a stole, in the room where the Holy Mass is to take place, they associate it right away with the opportunity to go to confession. Even in America, where confession in many parishes is only “by appointment” or on some previously scheduled day of the month.
There is a line of people waiting, but there’s still enough time to devote heart and attention to each person without haste.
My “parish” is continually growing. Even though the Eucharist is so early in the morning, many people want to start their day from meeting Lord Jesus. How good it feels to be part of “one holy catholic and apostolic Church.”
