The Austrian bishops not only suspended all Masses but also all confessions.
In a March 20 declaration, they pretend that they have the power to "dispense" the faithful from their Easter confession.
They cancelled all scheduled confessions. The faithful are allowed to contact priests only for "grave reasons."
The bishops advise those who go to confession regularly to "temporarily suspend this practice."
