I have been to a very weird confession today. I asked a priest for confession in rather inconvinient time. Priest accepted. When I started to say my sins, he seemed very uninterested in it and it seemed to me that he was looking at the corner of church all the time (we were behind the altar). When I told 2 or free sins, priest interupted me and said something like “all your sins that you want to say are included in this confession, pray 3 Hail Marys”, I prayed that prayer in which we say that we are sorry and then he absolve me. I have 2 questions:
- Is this confession valid and can I be 100% sure that all sins I wanted to mention are absolved
- Does not being concentrated while prayingg that prayer we pray during confession in which we say that we are sorry effect validity of confession?
