What it would be like to go to confess with Pope Francis? This question might had interrupted your thoughts especially during the Year of Mercy. Our desire could be satisfied by listening to the experience of a person who received a chance to obtain absolution from Pope Francis.
An American woman, Leslie Knopf studying in Rome shared her experience. Inside the confession booth, she was observing the Pope who preached what he practiced. She was experiencing a merciful father inside. He was very kind and attentive. Even enquired the place from where she came.
“It was a true experience of mercy, which is not merely saying that everything is okay, but truly a call to conversion,” Knopf said.
The Pope and Knopf even shared a laugh when she had a difficulty in pronouncing some Italian words. She continued saying that he “was fully present to the needs of my soul.”
