Please seek guidance from your pastor. Tell him your issues and explain your concerns and the anxiety you have. You could be developing scruples, so it is important to talk to your own pastor and get counseling from him.
If he told you what your penance is and you are absolved, then there is no problem, not to worry. If he can’t understand you or can’t carry through with your reception of the Sacrament, then he would have told you.
“The thoughts came to my mind”
Yes, this is manifest of the devil’s mischief. Related to this is the devil having the penitent relive daily the sin he committed so that he becomes despondent and loses hope. We are to remember the effect of the sin, as we share the hurt we caused with our Lord and the community. If we remember, then remember that we sinned and we will not repeat the offense. It’s like remembering the feeling when we accidentally put our hand in a flame, we remember the pain and where we shouldn’t put our hands.
So Relax! :), smile, rejoice, be happy that you have mended any separation of friendship with the Father. He is your friend and walks with you in your life. Who can boast of anything better while in exile here.?.
