I Saw Mr. Mark Pinus at St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco on Saturday.
It only shows religions are more similar than different. He was doing the same as me, awaiting confession. I did notice he was in and out rather quickly, and I had to bring note cards to detail my long list of infractions. I wanted to ask how many Our Fathers and Hail Mary's he received, but that is a rather personal question, strictly between Mark and his Maker. It's amazing how easily one is absolved of his sins. I always liked that aspect of Catholicism, though the priest did whisper something about Purgatory.
I'm just wondering if I should cover my short position, but Father O'Leary provided no adequate answer.
