I'm making my first Confession


Hi everyone. In a few hours, I’m going to make my first confession. Is there any advice? How specific do I need to be with the priest? Thanks in advance



Be Brief
Be Bold
Be Gone!

Remember, while some people experience feelings of relief after Confession, not everyone has those feelings. Make a good Confession and trust God’s mercy regardless of feelings.


You confess the sins and if it´s a serious sin then you should try to include the estimated frequency / number of times it´s been committed. If the priest wants clarification or any more information - he will ask for it, for the record; most priest don´t ask questions at all.

Remember that nothing are to great or to grave for God to forgive in Confession! Trust Him, He will forgive :slight_smile:
