I receive the Sacrament of Penance fairly frequently. When I first came back to the faith, however, I think there were two occasions that I confessed all sorts of things, although in both instances the priest said that I was just kind of “covered” for all the stuff in the past and didn’t have to sweat the details.
Sometimes, something I recall comes up. Now that I have it in mind, is it something that I need to confess although my various confessors told me I was covered?
I ask this because I feel it is different from forgetting a mortal sin in the confessional and then remembering it and confessing it later. I at least perceive it as different because in both circumstances my priest did not expect a listing of past sins, and really seemed to just hear what I had to say for the sake of my own conscience.
