*Ruffles brow*

You mean Confession to a Priest, or Confession to God at home? I was tought by my priest to come into confession if I really needed it, but simply talking to God at home was enough.

Ill look around for some prayers, though.

I mean confession to a priest -- what we read before the confession is heard, and after the confession is heard.

Hm. Im having a hard time finding them in that case. I have quite a few in one of my prayer books given to me during my days as a Catechumen. If you want, I can PM you them or e-mail them to you in a document.

That is a good site, and I've read through it before, but it's not what I'm looking for.  I'm looking for what the priest reads before confession, what the responses for the confessant are, and what the priest reads afterwards for absolving.

I echo that.  Sounds like a rather liberal priest unfortunately.

Maybe if I drink enough of each I'll forget that I wanted the texts?

We must confess our thoughts to Christ every day at home and we must daily repent of our sins.  But regular confession is a must--you need it about once a month for most people--and it should not be looked at as a burden but rather as a blessing. You don't get ahead in your job without performance reviews so how are you going to progress spiritually without external support and verification? Smiley

Do you guys confess all of your sins? Are you bound to confess the serious one's at least? What kinda of focus do you have in confession? Catholics must confess all of our mortal sins, those that cut off the divine life in us. I know that the Eastern Orthodox have no concept of mortal and venial sin in their theology, so I was just wondering how confession works for you guys.

From what I read on that website I posted earlier, you dont specify unless asked.

We confess all of our sins, for the most part.  Sometimes a person might go to confession just for a specific issue, but normally you would go to confess EVERYTHING.  After all, we don't always see how awful some of the things we do are.  I have sometimes done things that I thought were not anything to worry about, but the priest was very concerned about them, and he turned out to be right.
