My question is about confessing venial sins with mortal sins.
Are you supposed to distinguish between mortal and venial sins when it comes to the same action? For example, say person X committed murder 6 times, but only 4 of those times were mortal. If X wanted to confess his venial sins as well, would it be ok for him to just say, “I have committed murder 6 times…”? Or would he have to say, “I’ve murdered 4 times, but also 2 more times venially,”?
In my horrible way of explaining things, I’m basically trying to ask whether or not you are supposed to “separate” your mortal and venial sins when you list the number of times you sin.
