This is so sweet! And true!
While clapping in church is not usually appropriate, this little girl felt she had a good reason to do so!
Check out Fr. Goyo’s story below:
The text reads, “During confessions, every time someone went out, I heard a girl clapping.
“At the end, her mom came to apologize, ‘I’m so sorry. I explained to my daughter that confession makes us friends with God again, and she just wanted to cheer for everyone.’
“We need her in every parish!!!”
Here’s what people said in response to the tweet:

Another user responded, “Me: *walks out of confessional [GIF]*
This user said, “Now that’s what I call a cheer leader! 🙌🏻🙌🏻❤️”
This user added, “Someone in a previous parish told us when he went to Confession he left wanting to take everyone out for dinner to celebrate. Obviously we all asked when he was next planning to receive the Sacrament!”
Twitter user tmazgal also added, “Father last time I left Confession, as I was walking past the line I realized I had a big grin on my face. I wonder what the folks in line thought of that??😂”
Fr. Goyo responded, “That’s a good point. This little girl made everyone smile. They probably want to come back now lol.”
