Confession Question

If you sin and don’t plan on committing it again because you know it offends God, go to Confession but you forget to actually say to yourself “I firmly intend to never commit this sin again” are you still forgiven? Thanks!:confused:

Did the priest give you absolution?


yes, you are forgiven. it’s not a formula, it’s about what’s in your heart. and God knows your heart, and He is merciful. God bless.

Then you are forgiven.
