We all have our misconceptions of priests who through we take our sins to Jesus.
Try this. Go to a catholic bookstore and ask the clerk or any soul in the store, where is a good priest to go to confession. Take them up on it. Call and make an appointment. Show up. Greet the holy priest and go with him. Listen to his words when he prays. When he looks to you for your sins, you are looking into the eyes of your Saviour, persona Christi.
Take a breath, get on your knees, and tell Jesus you love Him so much you would never ever think of offending Him. I’m guilty of this and that sin, this many times since my last confession. And I promise to beg, plead, and pray at the next visit of temptation of the devil to not act on this thought. Listen very close to what that priest is saying. Take a breath and answer his questions, honestly. Whether you feel God’s Grace of absolution or not, you are forgiven, and sanctified. Hold very close to that as long as you can. Commit to confess regularly and to visit Jesus more than once a week. You are now a martyr for Christ and a soldier of the Immaculata. Go out and don’t stop blessing poor sinners.
