Monday night I committed a sin. I spent Tuesday discerning whether it was a mortal sin and by Tuesday evening I’d concluded that it was. I attended daily Mass on Tuesday morning and received communion. I know that if you commit a mortal sin and don’t know it is mortal sin then you don’t have that sin on your soul, but I felt that I had been fooling myself and known it from the very beginning that it was. Therefore, I was anxious about whether I’d committed the sin of sacrilege.
Fast-forward to today. I went to Confession and confessed my mortal sin. I completely blanked and forgot to mention my (possible) second mortal sin of sacrilege. I waited until everyone one else left and I went back into the confessional and confessed it. The priest told me that I had been forgiven already of all my sins and told me he’d pray for me. He did not give me absolution for the sin of sacrilege.
Now I’m worried that I still have this mortal sin on my soul…or was it a mortal sin at all! Thank you for your help! God bless you!
