Well, I couldn’t find Padre Alfredo here in Túcume. So I went to confession in Chiclayo instead.
I thought I had missed it for the week, but I happened to be passing the cathedral in Chiclayo when mass was starting, so I went it.
There was actually a priest working the confessional DURING mass, which surprised me. So I stood in line and confessed.
I was actually impressed … he was great. I explained that this was my first confession in spanish AND in Perú so I don’t know the custom here (it is actually very different—there is no Act of Contrition here in Perú).
He was really nice and asked me some probing questions without being judgemental at all. He gave me some valuable counsel and was very understanding.
I felt fantastic afterward. :D I’m so glad I did it. 8 years ago
