I was listening to Fr. Corapi giving advice on how to make a good confession. Maybe I heard something incorrectly, but I wanted to know if the following is right or not.
I believe that Fr. Corapi said you can go thru the Comandments to help you and tell the priest which ones you have broken, but you don’t have to give details.
I think for example you can say to the priest that you broke the 1st Commndment and you don’t have to give details on how you broke it. Is that correct?
Because the first Commandment says “You shall Worship the Lord Your God and him only Shall You Serve”. But this also includes, from what I read, idolatry,divination, magic and sorcery, Sacrilege, Atheism etc.
Does that mean you don’t have to mention exactly how or in what way you broke the Commandment? If you don’t give the “details” like if you did some witchcraft or something. or does that mean you are witholding a sin from the priest?
I’m not accusing Fr. Coarpi of anything and maybe I didn’t catch it all correctly, but it has me wondering now.
