Fr. Z kudos to the Archbp. of San Antonio.
From the Express-News:
Confessions to be heard for 24 hours at downtown church
SAN ANTONIO — The sacrament of confession will be offered for 24 hours straight by a team of priests and San Antonio Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller starting Saturday evening at St. Francesca di Paola Catholic Church, a parish on the northwestern edge of downtown visible from Interstates 10 and 35.
It’s in response to Pope Francis’ call on dioceses worldwide to provide “24 hours for the Lord” this weekend for round-the-clock confessions and prayer at a designated parish as part of Lent, the archbishop said.
“We also want to promote that when people leave, they forgive someone else,” García-Siller said. “If you have something against someone, those healing moments will go a long ways.”
The church is at 205 Piazza Italia. Read more at ExpressNews.com.
