PHILIPPINES: The Sacrament Of Confession 24 Hours A Day

It will be a place always open, where the mercy of God is ready to welcome the faithful 24 hours a day: this is the new chapel of Divine Mercy, whose construction has been launched with the laying of the first stone in the Archdiocese of Manila by Cardinal Jose Advincula, Archbishop of the city.

The chapel will be located in the complex of the Minor Seminary of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Makati.

In the same spirit, in another province in the center of the Philippines, Leyte, a special cart was designed and built to transport the confessional to the outlying areas of the city and villages. Our Lady of Lourdes parish in the city of Tacloban, Leyte province, has launched the “mobile confessional” which carries the sacrament to remote neighborhoods, apartment buildings, and villages.
