" The participant admitted that she was a bit scared at the beginning, but the prevailing atmosphere of the retreat made the stress disappear quickly: - “I am pleasantly surprised because the confession was made in a" friendly "manner, with great concern. At first there was stress, but after a while it was neutralized by the priest. I have to say that it was well organized and well run. "
