For some reason I’ve started remembering some sins from my past, things that happened more than 10 years ago. Some of these things I confessed at the time but others I probably didn’t because I wasn’t aware that they were sins. (I was in denial in my younger days and probably made some less than perfect confessions). Also, I tend to be quite concise when I go to confession and don’t elaborate on a specific sin unless the priest asks me about it. I wonder whether I’ve omitted things this way, by not spelling them out. For example, I confessed that I did something, but wasn’t specific about all that it encompassed.
What do I do? Should I mention these things next time I go to confession and explain the situation to the priest?
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and would appreciate some thoughts.
