Today I went to Confession, and did what that entails. This time, I was confessing a sin that happened 3-4 years before that I didn’t remember confessing(So it had already been forgiven). I mentioned what I remembered of it. However, I don’t remember if I forgot to add something to the explanation. At best, I forgot(which means it’s fine) and at worst, I didn’t mention it because I didn’t deem it important. For information, the sin was something that happened on the Internet, and the thing I might not have mentioned is that I consented to doing the online sin. With my fear of mortal sin and the idea that “Lying in confession is a mortal sin”, I’m wondering if I committed another mortal sin.
If I was analyzing this for someone else, I’d say it isn’t a mortal sin, considering I don’t remember if I even remembered this fact while confessing it, as well as omitting this fact isn’t distorting the action committed and isn’t really important. Since I’m emotional over it right now(as this happened a few hours ago and this always seems to happen just after confession), I decided to open it up to some anonymous advice.
I will either do one of two things(at the moment), based on your responses. I’ll say a prayer and forget about it, or I’ll go to Confession next week and confess to sacrilege(I received after Confession, so that would make it two if this fits the bill).
In prediction to your posts, I’m trying to lower the amount of times I go to confession(to once a month/when necessary), I’m trying to lower my scruples on certain sins, I have talked to my priest about scruples, he is my regular confessor, I only really have issues like this after confession, not on a regular basis:)
