This evening at St. Peter’s Basilica there was a Lenten penance service. Following, there were to be confessions for a little while there, and then in other places in the city for the next 24 hours. Pope Francis heard confessions for a little while as well.
However, before he took up his place in the confessional, he went – much to everyone’s surprise – to confession himself:
Have you made a good confession this Lent?
Do you make regular use of the Sacrament of Penance?
