I brought my neighbor to our Lenten Penance Service, she went in alone and emerged with a big smile on her face. It had been years since she went to confession and she was so pleased to have unburdened herself through this remarkable priest.

Great uplifting story! You done good!:) I understand the "big smile." Maybe your new young priest will hear her confession too.

My father-in-law’s wife (that would be my husband’s stepmother, a dear Sicilian lady) came back to the Church a couple of years ago. She said she went to the priest at the nearest church and said, “Father, I haven’t been to Confession in a long, long time,” and the priest said, “Okay, but you’re here now!” She was so happy!
