I am a srupulous person and have not normally made an examination of conscious prior to Confession. A formal and full examination of conscious can make me start questioning lots of things and make it difficult. When I go, I pretty much know the mortal sins I want to confess. Does this mean that if I forgot a mortal sin, it would not be forgiven because I didn’t make a formal examination of conscious by going through the Comandments or whatever?
By the way, it is my understanding that if you forget something you are still forgiven during Confession.
