San Anton Catholic Church in Madrid, Spain, is open 24 hours a day and boasts amenities such as free wifi and pet-friendly spaces within the church.
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."
