Not so long ago, it was the custom of local parishes, most acutely those with generous “penitential” reputations, to suspend hearing confessions during the Triduum. It was largely based on a mistaken interpretation of the missal, which understandably has us avoid Mass along with baptisms and weddings during this time. That’s why it’s great to see two priests central to Cincinnati’s East side renaissance generously offering access to confession on Good Friday. Fr. Fox at St. Rose will be “in the box” at 11 am tomorrow, and Fr. Weber at St. Cecilia at 3:30 pm. Don’t hesitate to keep the good padres company.

And here’s a link to Fr. Fox’s terrific homily for tonight’s Mass of the Lord’s Supper.
