First let me say that I attend confession regularly and I will continue to do so. I understand confession to a priest is like confessing to Christ. I also always use the screen to confess and at times I have went to other parishes other than my own to confess because it is uncomfortable to confess to a male let alone a priest I know who may recognize me. I am no way suggesting that there should be female priests. And I am aware that priests don’t judge us and understand that we are all sinners.
However, I would just like to know how do other women maintain modesty while trying to make honest confessions. I can find plenty of guides on how to make an honest confession but none specific to women, there are some for males though. It has almost deterred me from making some confessions but I’ve pushed through anyway. I’m looking for serious discussion not a debate since I have heard and read conflicting advice on making confessions. God bless!
