So a confession question. I was away from the church for a long time and made a confession with a sheet of paper the priest read over. Later as I remembered things that I had maybe missed, I wrote them down. Now about 6 months later I did another confession which I came in with a rather good sized list.
This confession this morning:
I met with the priest and we talked about scrupulosity etc and I pulled out the list, his eyes got rather large lol. And he instructed me to start confessing things since then I hadnt already confessed. Makes perfect sense with the scruples ;).
My question is this, we talked for a while and the conversation often diverted into just basic living the faith, faith questions, and I never really got through all my current sins. I tried but after about an hour he just started the absoultion. Truthfully he was patient but seemed like he wanted to get things moving lol. Fair enough, but Im concerned that I had things I didnt get to. I asked after "so can I just get rid of this list and move on" and he said yes. So I certainly wasnt trying to hide anything, but it didnt feel I got through the current stuff either. Am I good to recieve communion. Bottom line, hes a great, nice guy, but Id rather not annoy him to death either, and I know scrupulosity goes nuts sometimes, but I dont want to recieve unworthily either. Thanks all.
