An Irish Priest Is Offering Confession On A Bus That Was Blessed By The Pope
The Mercy bus is comin' and everybody's jumpin'.
Co. Tyrone native, Fr. Frankie Mulgrave is offering people confession on a bus blessed by Pope Francis.
Over four hundred people have already been absolved for their sins on the "Mercy" bus, which is currently touring Northern England.
Fr. Mulgrew, who is the son of the famous Irish comedian Jimmy Cricket, has said that he is willing to travel to Ireland with the bus if the interest is there.

Speaking to Irish News he said:
“We just don’t know where roads may lead.
"If there was a request from priests in Northern Ireland for it to come across then who knows.
“The whole idea is that we are going out to people, we’re not waiting for them to come to us.
“We’re trying to give more mercy, more joy and more peace to people’s lives. We’re going out there to show where this mercy is available.
“As the great saint of Ireland St Patrick himself said, mercy is for everyone.”
It's not the first time the Tyrone priest has served his Christianity with a side of humour - three years ago he released a book called "Does God LOL?, a collection of stories about humour in Christianity."
We are on board with this guy.
