Mortal sin Monday, Confessions only on Sat--what do I do?


What is one to do if Confessions are only available on Saturday afternoon and I have committed a grave sin on a Monday? Wait? Pray? Break down the Church doors?



Call the priest or knock on his door. Go to the sacristy. Don’t ask–tell him that you need to go to Confession. He is obligated to respond.
