Catholic Confession Guatemala

Catholic Confession Guatemala
I took the three Quetzal bus from Pana to Solola, Guatemala with two Americans from California. We entered the Catholic Church, there was over 40 people waiting for the Priest to show up so they could do confession.

Somehow it does not surprise me a Latino Priest would be late... hehehe

This is the Confessional inside the Church. I am in favor of Confession and believe that all people need to confess their shameful actions. To reconcile a problem, the problem needs brought into the light, discussed and then a commitment needs made to stop the problem. By confessing a problem, we make the commitment to change to another person, and if we continue to be bad, we are making a commitment be bad.

Generally, most people have no desire to change, there for all of this is moot, and does not apply, yet for people who wish to become better humans, some form of confession is great.

This was a double-sided confessional, it appears that a Priest could listen to two people at one time, or they could line up on both side for high-speed confessions.

Many along the way will lose the way…

Andy, the double-entry confession is so the priest can just turn from one side to the other and hear confessions back to back rather than spending the minute or so waiting for the little old lady to make her way out and the next little old lady to make her way in.

Last time I ran into you I believe you were on your way out of Pana and to San Pedro. Still there?
