This post was answered by Jim Blackburn. The person asked if confession was required once a year and Jim said only if it is a mortal sin and no church law says otherwise.
But isn’t the Catechism of the Catholic Church our “law”, since it contains our beliefs??? Because on # 2042 the Catechism says" The second precept (“You shall confess your sins at least once a year.”) ensures preparation for the Eucharist by the reception of the sacrament of reconciliation, which continues Baptism’s work of conversion and forgiveness. "
Or are we to believe that the Catechism is wrong…or even incomplete because it doesn’t say “mortal” sin?
