I’ve been going to confession more regularly (every week or 2 weeks) during my lunch break at a Catholic Church near my work. I love going now, and even though I don’t do a face-to-face confession, the priest I confess to makes me feel so comfortable and I can feel his kindness. He assures me how loving our Lord is and I just really like him as a priest ( I like all priests, but there’s only been 1 who has been my favorite and is now a bishop actually).
My question is, now that I go more regularly and there’s not many people who go to confession on the day/time i go, so I am sure he recognizes who I am now. I don’t mind, but now I might start worrying about doing certain sins in order to not confess them to him in my next confession. Of course I don’t want to sin for my love for God/Jesus, but I suppose there’s some things that I wouldn’t be comfortable saying to the priest now that I have been going to him more often. I’ve already confessed a lot, but it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to say and also it was because he was a new priest to me.
There’s one particular thing I want to confess at my next confession but I kind of dont want to confess this to this particular priest who I regularly go to now. I would think it’s ok to go to a different priest at another church, but is this not a good habit to start?
