The BBC recently featured San Anton Catholic Church in Madrid, Spain, that has made some significant changes including staying open 24 hours a day to both people and pets in order to help more encounter God. The church even has its own confession mobile app and free wifi.
While these changes are not without criticism, one member defends this new church atmosphere. He explains, "We wanted to follow Pope Franicis' words. He advocates an open church where people can come day and night. So people who are away from the church can come back without any conditions."

"Religious life ought to promote growth in the Church by way of attraction. The Church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of acting, of living! It is possible to live differently in this world.” -- Pope Francis
