So this is what happened some years ago. I was waiting in line for confession. It was a day before a holy day of obligation, so confessions were going on everywhere and many people had come. After waiting in line for a long time, I reached a point where I was 2nd in the line. But I sensed that the priest was going to leave any moment (there was no time limit specified, but I just felt he was going to leave and then I would not be able to confess my sins to another priest).
So I requested this girl who was 1st in the line whether I could go next. I didn’t know how long she would take and I had a mortal sin to confess, but I knew that my confession was going to be short. I told her that it would take just about 3 mins for me. So she agreed and let me go next. So I went.
And as soon as my confession was done, just as I had thought, the priest got up and left and as he left I felt guilty that I had “stolen” grace from this girl. She wasn’t able to do her confession. But then I consoled myself saying that maybe her sins were not mortal.
What is your opinion on this whole episode?
