During confession today, the priest told me to try and “read the bible and pray the Rosary everyday”. I thought it was a good idea and thought it was just advice and not my penance, but walking out of the confessional, I realized that I was not given any other penance, so maybe THIS was my penance.
So does this mean I can never really complete my penance and would have to do it for the rest of my life?
I can’t go back and ask for clarification because I was on vacation and am far away from this church. I know my sins are forgiven regardless of the penance but I’m not really sure what to do. I do want to try to read the bible daily and pray the Rosary but I feel odd about it being a penance I can never actually finish.
