I am worried that my confession this morning might not have been valid. I had confessed having a bad temper and sometimes thinking really mean things about people. The priest asked me if the thoughts just stayed in my head. I said “yes”, but as soon as I said it, I thought of several times that I had spoken the mean thoughts out loud. I didn’t correct my earlier statement, so that could be a lie. Is my confession still okay or should I re-confess everything? I went to mass this morning, but was afraid to take communion in case I committed a mortal sin in confession.
After confession, I tend to always worry that I said or did something wrong. Or I worry that I forgot to confess something. But this is the first time that I’ve gotten a bad feeling in the confessional.
