I am not sure about anyone else but I really wish that we could be blessed with priests today like Padre Pio or St. John Vianney who stay in the confessional for hours at end to hear confessions and not a mere 30 minutes to an hour once a week before Saturday evening mass and priests that can read souls. I also don't get who some priests change the words to the absolution prayer. Comments...
The Archdiocese of Hartford has set up a Lenten Reconciliation/Confession website. The link is below. It is very detailed in how to make a good Confession, from soup to nuts. It is specific about confessional prayers. Questions and answers for those who haven't been to Confession in years. It is a good resource.
All the CT parishes are having Monday confessions from 6PM to 7pm during Lent.

3. who we are
Archdiocese of Hartford.
In this Year of Faith we are called to celebrate, deepen, and share the spiritual richness of our Catholic faith. This year will be marked by evangelization efforts, increased Catholic formation opportunities, prayer, and liturgical celebrations.
The Archdiocese of Hartford is pleased to invite all Catholics in the Archdiocese, especially those who have been away from the Church or the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance, or Confession, to experience God’s mercy and forgiveness.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
At the same time, with so many problems still existing too many of which border on heresy, we are also told to shop for a parish if our local one does not meet our needs.
Of course, we have always had that right. But to be encouraged to use that right is truly an indication of the depth of the problems.
Well, yes, but I am beginning to see that the problem is not entirely outside of myself, so maybe the solution needs to come from inside as well...
