I'm new here and have a dilemma with going to Confession. I'm in a Catholic high school right now that is run by the Jesuits. Needless to say, they are around school all day and are available to students for prayer, Confession, or just to talk whenever. Now, I normally go to Confession every month or so with one of the Jesuits, but we are currently out of school. I have a few opportunities to go to Confession before returning to school in August, but I am really nervous and hesitant to go to Confession with a priest I don't know. I am much more comfortable with the Jesuits at my school, because I know them and they know me, plus I'm more comfortable confessing at school.
Now, here's the kicker. I may or may not be in a state of mortal sin. While I know the sin I committed was wrong, at the time of the sin, I had no thoughts of "this is a mortal sin and I am offending God." So is it a mortal sin if at the time I didn't think about it?
Anyway, that's my dilemma. I'm not sure if I am in a state of mortal sin, and if so, I don't feel comfortable going to Confession outside of school. If I waited until I went back to school, I'd confess at the first chance I could get.
Any suggestions or words of advice?
