I went to confession today and made my confession like I normally do on Saturday. For my penance, however, I was told to attend an addict group meeting (since I confessed that I masturbated). What should I do since:
- I am a kid (17) and I would feel extremely embarrassed attending an adult addict group.
- I don’t even know what the group is or where they meet. (The priest didn’t give me a name)
Number 2 isn’t really all that valid since the guest priest told me that I should talk with my parish priest to see if he knows anything about the group but I don’t want to reveal that sin to my parish priest.
Can anybody help? I found this very hard to type and this all weighed very heavy on me throughout the day. I’m not really even sure if this is coming across clearly.
