I would be glad to frequent confession once a month or more, but I have trouble coming up with sins to confess. In my mind this is not as arrogant as it sounds. I am middle aged, live a pretty stable life, have a small group of close friends at home church and work, frequent the sacraments regularly, I'm just a cradle Catholic who has cultivated good habits. I have a hard time coming up with sins to confess. The usual examination of conscience lists are not all that helpful. I have not counseled anyone to get an abortion, or committed perjury, etc.
So I'm asking some of you who are frequent confessors: help me come up with a list of sins that a devoted Catholic would use as an examination of conscience. What are some examples?
If you respond with a challenge that I am deluding myself and I really do have lots of sins... then I'll agree with you. I am sure I am not more holy than the recent popes who go to confession every week. So what do they confess? Do you mostly just confess imperfections (which are not really sins)? Help me uncover what sins I must have that I am not seeing.
