…and seemed like he was “having a bad day”, I have NEVER had this happen. WOW!
Not gonna announce what I confessed, but, as a single, celibate 37 year old man who does not “fool around” or even seek such things, I do struggle with the “secret sin”. Again, this doesn’t take much thinking.
Confessed that I slipped 3 times this week, it’s a struggle ongoing since puberty. Priest goes “Well, sounds like ya just got a habit, nothing I can say will really help you other than just to keep on coming back.” IN A REAL SMART*** WAY!
I was shocked and wanted to go “Father, you having a bad day or something?” I then mention venial sins and he more or less hurried me up and said “now go ahead and say your act of contrition”, gives me absolution but even saying those words, he was moody.
I was just floored. I will say this. Next time I feel a lapse coming on, I am going to imagine he is the ONLY confessor in this world. Should lose that urge real quick. Left and went to another Church for Mass instead. Unbelievable!
