Confession experience
#1
So I went to the NO Church for confession today. I know the priest at this Church and he is really holy and a good priest. Much to my chagrin there was another priest there today but I wanted to go to Confession so I stayed there. I got there early because I wasn't staying for Mass obviously and I wanted to have a chance to pray before and after Confession. So, while I was saying my Rosary before confession the priest comes over and in a loud voice says "Cold out there isn't it!" Out of charity I answered him and was friendly towards him when I wanted to say "Do you mind, I am praying." But it was better to be nice then rude. So back to saying my Rosary and by this time another elderly lady came in for confession and she started saying her Rosary too which was very good to see. This priest then goes back and starts having a conversation with another person in a loud voice. Now, he wasn't being loud on purpose, it's just this priest has a loud voice when he speaks. At least I went to confession and it was valid but I am really glad I don't go to the NO Mass...oh, the other thing is when the priest went to the tabernacle he didn't even genuflect or anything. Then when he walked by it again he just made a quick bow. Now, I don't want to judge him on this either because hopefully his reason is because of health reasons because I would hate to see a priest being disrespectful towards Our Lord...I would rather think there is a good reason he couldn't genuflect.

I am just more and more thankful every day that I have access to the traditional Mass and I don't have to put up with the nonsense at the NO. Just for the record...the reason I didn't go to confession at the TLM tomorrow is because it's not uncommon to have a long line and the priest only allows 15 minutes for confession and there has been more than one occasion where 1 person uses up all 15 minutes. Since I help set up for the Mass, I would rather go to confession before Mass so I can focus on setting up for the Mass and now worry about having to rush to get in line for confession.
