But before the huge Mass, we needed to go to confession. You can see the amazing number of confessionals in the pictures above, they were lined up as far as the eye can see in both directions in Retiro Park.
I spent many days visiting the Love and Life centre where the guests were Abp Chaput and Fr Baron among others. But the highlight was definitely the "Catholic Underground" Eucharistic adoration sessions hosted by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. The music was beautiful, the lyrics meaningful and the presence of God tangible. On Friday after the Stations of the Cross we had the most amazing adoration which left many people in tears of gratitude.
