Making Good Confession


Can someone please tell me how to make a good confession. Thanks


Large amounts of butter, sugar, and chocolate help :slight_smile:

Google “Catholic Examination of Conscience”- that should be a start


Plenty of sugar.

I really like M&M’s and Twix.


Pray that God may aid you in searching your conscience.
Then, truly sorry for your sins, confess them.
Follow the priests instructions.

Write down the Act of Contrition if you need it.



Get a good Catholic examination of conscience guide.

Go through the 10 commandments, and list mortal & venial sins under each commandment. Pray for help to be ruthlessly honest with yourself. Get to Confession and don’t be late. Do your penance. Rejoice with the angels.
