So I tried to create an examination of conscience the other day, but I realized that there are so many things that I’m not sure about the sinful nature of that I don’t feel good excluding them as “doubtful” sins. They are not in past, they’re things that I have to make a decision on every day and I have no idea if I’m making the right decision.
I understand the idea of asking 1 or 2 questions to your confessor, but I have about 12 of them, and I’ve discovered in the past that asking generalized questions does nothing to help me; I need to provide details or else I start worrying about all the ways in which the answer given does not apply to my specific situation. So it will take a long time to work through them. The church that I want to go to does not seem to accept appointments for confession (there is nothing in the website or bulletin or anything about making appointments). I would go to a church that does accept appointments, but there are only two other churches in my area and I don’t think either of them will really work out for this particular venture.
Is this appropriate to do? I’m feeling really, really lost and confused on a lot of issues; I’ve tried asking about a number of them on here, but mostly it’s been unhelpful. I am not really sure what else to do, because I’ve accepted by now that I am entirely incapable of answering any of these on my own. If you think I shouldn’t do that, what should I do? I am waiting on a driver’s license so that I can visit different churches, but for right now, this one seems to be my only viable option.
