As I read the lives of the saints I two things jump out at me. One that I don’t go to confession often enough with perhaps every two to three months and two I must not be recognizing all my sin.
I read the Bible and Christian books every day. I pray the Liturgy of the Hours Morning and Night prayer every day. And I practice quite sit prayer for 30 minutes every day. I try to get to Eucharistic Adoration one a week.
I practice my faith through Carmelite Spirituality. Over the last four years or so I have had a spiritual director but he was transferred about six months ago.
As I read the lives of the saints they are going to confession at what seems like once a week or even more if they could have done so. I am no saint. So I must be sinning far more than I realize. How does one come to the grace of understanding their own sin? Do people go to Confession even if they have not sinned to possibly confess their imperfections?
Any thoughts and help greatly appreciated!
