The Archdiocese of Manila has set in motion the opening of a confession chapel accessible to the faithful at any given time of the day or night.
Manila Archbishop Jose Cardinal Advincula said they are seriously looking at the Divine Mercy Chapel of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Minor Seminary Complex in Makati City soon for the project.
“We envisioned that this can be a place where anytime a person can avail himself of the Sacrament of Reconciliation,” the prelate said in an interview over Church-run Radio Veritas Wednesday.
The Cardinal noted that the 24/7 confession chapel will be pf great help for the devotees who could make a confession any time.
“God has always been waiting for the preeminent moment when a person can feel, can do, and can approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation,” Advincula stressed.
According to him, confession or reconciliation is a sacrament where the faithful seek forgiveness for offenses committed against God by acknowledging their sins, expressing sorrow, and making reparation.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the chapel was recently held, led by the Manila Archbishop.
The complex is located along Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) near MRT Guadalupe Station.
