In one of his early interviews, Pope Francis was asked to describe himself. His response was
immediate. “Here, this is me, a sinner on whom the Lord has turned his gaze.” With regards to
how frequently he went to Confession, he stated in another interview that he goes to Confession
every 15 days. On March 28, 2014, Pope Francis surprised even his aide by going to Confession in
full view of the public before serving as confessor in St. Peter’s Basilica. In this way, Pope Francis
has repeatedly witnessed to the need for conversion in his own life.
