Hello everyone i go to Rome in a few hours. And i havent confessed in a very long time do you know if its possible to go to confesion in the vatican ?
Is there English speaking priets there?
I havent confessed in a long time so have sort of forgot how to. I am going to write down what i have to say is this right?
As you make the sign of the cross say, " Bless me Father for I have sinned it has been (how many weeks, months, or years approximately.) since my last confession." “I accuse myself of the following sins.”
CONFESS MY SINS
he will give you penance- normally prayers or to do a good deed or something of the sort.
Father will then ask you to say the Act of Contrition.
I then say-
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy.
Is the above right ?
Father will now grant you absolution. Listen attentively to his blessing and make the sign of the cross as he blesses you.
And say Amen
