Afraid to go to confessions


#1

I am afraid to go to confession. I had a bad experience when I was young with a priest. he shouted at me for what I done. I was only 10 at the time. I am now 28 . I know its a long time. I am now afraid the priest ( different priest) will shout at me for my sins

Most of us, when we were kids, had our parents shout at us for doing something wrong. That did not mean that every word from your parent is shouting.

Priests are human beings, maybe before confession, make an appointment to simply talk to the priest. Take him to lunch or for a beer.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

I’m sorry that happened. It’s very inappropriate and can be traumatic. Praying for you, Omcc256, that our all-gentle Mother will help you.

Jesus.

St. Michael the Archangel,

defend us in battle.

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,

and do thou,

O Prince of the heavenly hosts,

by the power of God,

thrust into hell Satan,

and all the evil spirits,

who prowl about the world

seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Your experience says more about the human fallibility of that priest than your sins!
May Jesus guide you through…
