Couple weeks ago I went to Confession with a heavy heart and was confessing some uh…rather serious sins. But the whole time, the priest was kinda acting goofy and not serious about anything. I mean, I confessed a rather serious sin and he laughed and said “Ooo, that’s a popular one”. Stuff like that.
Plus the penance wasn’t much. I mean, I don’t expect that he ask me to say 1,000 rosaries or something, but I expected an actual penance. I’m confused about all of this. What should I do? I’m beginning to think the whole thing was invalid because I don’t think I was fully concentrating on my sins because I was caught so off guard by his humor and carelessness. Anyone ever have something similar happen?
