I had my first confession today!
I have two questions however. I’m worried that I may have been dishonest in the confessional. I did not lie or conceal any sin (and I did my best to say all my sins). However, when I was saying the age at which I did one of the sins I was embarrassed for I may have lowered it by 1 or 2 years to make myself look better. (Or at least that’s the worst case scenario! The best case is that I tried my best to tell the truth.)
Immediately once I realized this, I went to the priest and told him this. He said it didn’t matter.
Now I went home and I’m afraid that I may have accidentally detracted a person. I was telling my sins and it seemed like the priest had assumed that I did them with one person. So I said “no, I didn’t do them with that person, I only did with that person.” (This was with the intention of correcting the possible misunderstanding the priest had.) So I’m afraid I detracted by saying that…
Did I? Am I safe to go for first Communion this evening?
(P.S. It’s Hermione again!)
