I have long thought that regular confession is not really necessary. The Church in the Catechism teaches that venial sins are forgiven when receiving the Holy Eucharist, and that only mortal sins must be confessed. So I have always been of the opinion that it is only really necessary to approach the Sacrament when requested by the Church ie, once a year around Easter time, and when in mortal sin.
Of late, my prayer has led me to more frequent confession. It has slowly become a weekly practice for me. I now find that I have the need to confess more often. This has become a great blessing for me, and I thank God for this wonderful blessing.
I just wanted to share this with you, and ask you to pray for me.****
