Praying in the torture chamber
Maybe “torture chamber” is a bit dramatic, but not much. I have been battling foot problems for almost two years now. It's why I wear sneakers to Mass, it’s too painful to wear shoes.
So my doctor sent me for an MRI. After filling out the three pages of waivers, conditions and an affidavit that I don’t have any metal in me that might blow up the machine, a pleasant tech ushered me toward a tiny room. He handed me a hospital gown and told me he'd be back in a second.
This Lenten season, St Camillus and every other Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Washington and the Diocese of Arlington will have confessions available every Wednesday evening from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. If you have been reluctant to come to the sacrament, have been away for some time or just found it difficult to get to a Saturday afternoon confession time, this is a wonderful opportunity to re- connect with Christ and His Church.
