I often go to confession on Saturdays (lately every week). I try to do an examination of conscience frequently (though I forget to do it every day). I haven’t committed a mortal sin in a long time, and sometimes I will only think of a few sins in a week, but I’m sure I must be sinning much more often and not realizing it. Or I have sinful tendencies, like I want approval, I’m lazy, or I have an emotional attachment to food, but I can’t think of specific instances that I’ve committed those sins-- either because I haven’t committed them, or maybe I don’t realize it.
So is there a way I can be more aware of my sins or is there an examination for venial sins? Or how do you do an examination of conscience?
