I dont know if I am being scrupulous or what, but please answer as soon as possible.
So, the other day I confessed a mortal sin and the priest asked me if I knew a certain prayer. I answered yes even though I didn’t know it (I have committed myself to learning it though). The next day, I fell back into self abuse and I then went to confession again and confessed that I lied, but gave no details that the lie occurred in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
My questions are:
[/LIST]Is my first confession (the one I lied about knowing a prayer) invalidated by my lie and do I have to go and confess my mortal sin again?
If not, does my confession that I lied cover the lie during confession even though I didnt give the details of the lie?
Please let me know. Thank you and God bless!!
