The Church requires one resolve his doubt before acting when doubt exists about an act’s sinfulness.
I talked (anonymously) to a priest in confession about a moral question I had. Things worked out in my favor; there was no sin to be concerned about.
However, now I am having doubts regarding his answer. My fear is, what if I didn’t say the right thing, and that’s what resulted in the favorable response? What if I used the wrong words, so it sounded like a completely different thing? To make matters worse, I can’t remember precisely what I said.
So my doubt has resurfaced anew because of these questions. I wonder, then, am I obligated to go back re-ask the question?
Self-knowledge tells me these are just baseless fears, as I have a habit of going down these paths. Then again, knowing this about myself doesn’t dispel the doubt, which the Church obliges me to resolve.
What do I do?
