We are all sinners

Perhaps you have already seen this stunning photo of Pope Francis going to Confession and receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation at St. Peter's Basilica this past Friday.  His action took place during a special Penance Service which launched "24 Hours for the Lord" called for by the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization.  Dioceses around the world were asked to provide round-the-clock times for Confession in parishes during this fourth week of Lent.  On his way to hear confessions himself, the Holy Father walked to this confessional and knelt before the priest.  His humility is edifying and convicting.
