St. Patrick's "Festival of Forgiveness"

As part of our Holy Father's request that each diocese offer twenty-four hours of straight confessions in one of their parishes, St. Patrick's took Pope Francis up on his offer. Fr. Pete Jankowski decided to hear confessions from 8:00 a.m. on April 5th until 8:00 a.m. on April 6th. Below you can read Fr. Pete's reflection on the event itself as well as an audio interview with Timothy Cardinal Dolan on his weekly New York radio program.
