The Sacrament of Confession is the only Ordinary way to have Mortal Sins Forgiven
When we go to Confession, we tell our sins to a priest. Remember, the priest represents Jesus during confession.
What sins do we tell the priest?
Do we tell him every little thing that we have done? No. We should try to be as short and simple as possible. We should say “I was rude” or “I did not listen to my parents” or “I was mean to my brother or sister.” To understand this more read the story about Jerry Johnson:
Jerry Johnson had a bad habit of saying “NO” to his mom and dad when they asked him to help around the house. When they would ask him to take out the garbage he would say “NO!” When they asked him to clean his room he would say “NO!” When they would ask him to help set the dinner table, Jerry would again say “NO!” When Jerry was 14 and finally able to make his First Confession, he realized that he was wrong to never listen to his parents. He felt very sorry for his actions and never wanted to disobey his parents again. When he went to Confession for the first time, rather than list all of the times he had said “NO” to his parents, he simply told the priest that he did not listen to his parents 15 times.
A good examination of your conscience means going through your daily life to see where you disobeyed God. Then, you will be able to know what sins to confess.
