To make a long story short, I went to confession today after three weeks time. In my confession, I rambled quite a bit and at one point it came to an ideology every Catholic should hate, communism. I confessed that some of my hatred of communism might slip over to the sinners who are communists, instead of what I should do which is to hate the sin, not the sinner. I said I did not know a communist. I received absolution for it and my other sins.
But I think I might have felt a twinge ( maybe imagined) while saying that. I was very nervous throughout the whole confession. When I was about to start my penance, I remembered that I knew a socialist from the internet. I panicked. When the confessional was open again, I confessed that I knew a socialist from the internet but not very well, and that I feared I invalidated my confession. He said absolution again to give me peace of mind. I felt fine briefly after that until after I had left the church, but then I wondered if I lied if I said I didn’t know this person well though this person asn’t one of my closest friends (because we did speak a few times on non-political things, albeit not recently as far as I can recall), and I’m scared now that I am guilty of sacrilege again and am in a state of horrible mortal sin and can’t receive communion tomorrow morning like I long for. It was not my intention to lie. Advise please!
