I went to Confession, but I couldn’t recall what my penance was. I’m positive the priest gave me penance, he didn’t forget. I remember him giving me something, I just can’t remember what. Usually I’m asked to pray three Hail Mary’s, one for my own sins, one for my parish, and one for the Holy Father’s intentions. So I just did this, and hoped I got it right.
I know the validity of the Sacrament TECHNICALLY doesn’t rely on penance, but was this the proper thing to do?
