I am a recent convert to Catholicism, and I am struggling with this weird attitude about confession. It’s not that I have a problem with it, in fact I like it way too much. After I go, I can’t get the session out of my head and I replay everything I said and everything the priest said. Then I start getting obsessed with when I’m going to go back and what I can say. I don’t think I’m scrupulous, although I have some of those tendencies. I have the temptation to just make up grave sins to tell in confession, or even worse, to commit grave sins so that I can confess them!! I guess my first experience of God’s mercy was so powerful that I want more, more, more!! If anyone has maybe experienced the same thing, or has advice on how to get the proper attitude toward confession, please post!!
Thank you and God Bless!
