I hope I have posted this question in the right place. If not anyone please let me know the right place so that I can move this question to appropriate place.
My question is regarding sacrament of reconciliation. I love going to confessions regularly and receiving Eucharist. I consider it as a powerful sacrament.
I wish to know that is it okay to confess directly to our Lord and receive Eucharist than directly confessing to a priest, except in the case of mortal sins? I know it doesn’t sound catholic. Many times I feel the priest who conducts confession doesn’t have the patience to listen to me in detail. He just wants to hear it as soon as possible and move on.
I feel it comfortable in confessing directly to our Lord as I can do it in my own pace and time and can talk to him in detail, concentrate properly since many times there will be lots of disturbances in church.
Moreover I would like to know the difference between mortal and venial sins, I am still confused in that area.
