Hello, all. I hope everything is going well.
I hate to have to question a priest, but I recently went to confession and received a penance that seemed a little off-kilter. He told me simply to offer the next Mass I attended for Pope Francis’s intentions. When I asked him how to carry that out exactly, he said it would suffice for me to declare such an intention during the prayers of the faithful.
I don’t know. What do you guys think about this? On the one hand, he is an ordained minister. On the other hand, something doesn’t sit right. But what do I know?
