does the devil go to ceonfession

I know not in the sense of seeking forgiveness but does he go in so he squeeze inside to tempt people into withholding mortally wounding sins or does he wait outside because he cant bare going in

Somewhere i read or was told that the demons cannot gain direct access to what is said in the Confessional. All they can do is guess. Hope that’s the case! :shrug:
They’re pretty good guessers, though.

Someone else might have better info…

The Devil isn’t omnicient but he does work off of our weaknesses.A good examination of conscience and a prayer to the Holy Spirit for a good confession will ward off any temptations by Satan to defeat our efforts.:pray:
