    The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception (shown above) is an amazing monument to Catholicism, and if one has never been to Washington, it’s something not to miss. Some (not me) say that it’s over the top – flamboyant even – but that’s America for you. The only thing I was unhappy about during my last visit concerned the waiting area for Confession where the Cathedral staff have thoughtfully placed separate chairs (rather than a pew) for penitents to sit in whilst waiting for a confessional to become available. The thing is: when the person closest to the booth stands up to enter, everyone else has to stand up too and advance one chair closer to the booth – making us all look and feel like children playing musical chairs. Hardly conducive to completing a thorough examination of conscience.
