I’ve been going to Confession every month without fail since last June, when I decided to “come home.” For the most part, I went to the 8pm time alotted for Confession and since the same priest would hear my Confession, I became very self-conscious about confessing the same sins over and over and over again! Despite this knowledge, I continued to commit the sin and would invariably have to confess it the following month. This embarassment, along with truly attempting to defeat this particular sin, has been working as of late and I believe that part of my small success is due to the fact that my priest knows me, as well. And that I really dread having to confess the sin again (and the number of times I’ve committed it!). It’s amazing what wonders familiarity can produce when you dread having to confess (yet again!) the same darn sins!
Anyone experience this?
