(Apart from the cross, there is no other ladder by which we may get to Heaven. St. Rose of Lima)
I'm just wondering why interest in the Tridentine mass is so high, yet interest in the Sacrament of Confession/Reconciliation seems so low.
I go to Mass every week, and everyone goes up to receive Communion, but Confession is a mere two times a week, for a half-hour. I include myself in that group.
Conversion starts with the heart, not the form of the ritual.

Just to clarify a bit, while the chaplin is Fr Ottonello, the Rector of the Oratory is Fr Michael Wiener of nearby Oakland diocese. He is a priest of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest and carries the title of Episcopal Delegate for the Tridentine Rite for the Oakland diocese, which has the full support of Oakland bishop Vigneron for further expansion.
