    Pope Francis surprised his own master of ceremonies on Friday by confessing his sins to an ordinary priest. The pope was presiding at a service intended to show the importance he attaches to the sacrament of reconciliation, commonly known as confession. His master of ceremonies, Monsignor Guido Marini, pointed him toward the empty booth but the pope went straight to a another one, knelt before a surprised priest, and confessed to him for a few minutes.
