This has probably been addressed in other threads, but here is the question:
After going to reconcilliation after an absence of 30+ years, I confessed everything I could think of. I have been going every 2 months or so ever since.
Now, dealing with the distant (30+ years ago) past, there is always a detail that comes up that I missed. I was wild, and confessed the sins in general, some specific, but there were so many that I couldn't remember the details of them all. Now I do. I confessed them in a "bucket" that admitted the mortal sins - not out of a desire to hide but there were so many things to confess - but now I can see the contents of that bucket more clearly. And each time I go to reconcilliation, I bring up something from the past because these are mortal sins, there is a period of peace and then the memories of details come in again.
Where does this end? Does it ever end?
