Today is Septugesima Sunday according to our pastor’s homily. In the Tridentine Rite, the liturgical colour is now purple-we are penitent a little earlier I guess.
My Church offers confession all day Sunday (well, while the Church is open until the end of the last Mass). I went to confession, and my dd decided to go (God bless her she goes every Sunday). She was in line behind me two people down.
The priest who hears confession is very old and does not hear so well. I am deaf in one ear and do not hear so well. I attempted to whisper my confession, but the priest could not hear, so I spoke up. With my bad hearing, I am a bad judge of appropriate “louder” at times.
When I left the confessional, my dd signaled for me to come to her so she could tell me something. I went over and she said “Mom, next time be a little quieter.” Yikes!
