I went to my appointment for confession today, and I am so glad I went. However, when I went into the confessional room, I did not say “Father forgive me for I have sinned.” I thought the priest would have mentioned it if I needed to, but he didn’t. At the end of my confession when the priest was talking to me, I mentioned that I did not say the “Father forgive me for I have sinned” and he said it was OK.
Also, I had my list of things I wanted to confess in my email on my phone (what I was reading from while confessing), and I did leave out some things… I didn’t think they were mortal so I just didn’t mention them. Although I did mention a lot of venial sins though. Here are some confessions that I did not include:
I told my friend “umm not really” when she asked if I was talking to someone (as in for dating). Kinda making her think I was dating someone I guess
thinking/talking to myself saying brother is a loser
thinking or saying family can go to hell (when I get mad or upset)
saying “f my life”
put ashes on my forehead before mass started on Ash Wednesday
thinking my sister can go “f herself”
Does anyone think these are mortal and that I would need to confess all my sins over again? I did say the most important and tougher sins for me to let out which I am proud, but now I think I should have just mentioned these in case.
