I spent the afternoon at the Cathedral in St. Paul. The church was filled. 10 priests heard confessions from after the noon Mass until after Benediction, which concluded around 3:30 PM. What a holy day, and thank God for such good, holy priests. This Archdiocese is truly blessed. I wish I had brought my camera because the sanctuary was magnificently decorated with flowers of every sort, and the very large miraculous image of Divine Mercy was suitably exposed for veneration.
As I prayed, I wished those I love, family and friends who do not go to church, or do not believe, could have been there with me - how easy it would have been for them to go to confession and receive grace in abundance. I brought them with me in my prayer however... If you are reading this, or have ever read my blog, you were there in my prayer too.
Thanks to Fr. Joseph Johnson, Rector of the Cathedral of St. Paul, and his associates, for their devout example and generosity in bringing the sacraments to us this day, and always.
