Confession how to ....
Sin is any thought, word, desire, action, or neglect (omission) prohibited (forbidden) by the law of God. There are two kind of sin, mortal sin and venial sin. A mortal sin is a sin that, unless forgiven and fully absolved, condemns a person to Hell immediately after death. Rome defines a venial sin (meaning "forgivable" sin) as a lesser sin that does not result in a complete separation from God and eternal damnation in Hell. A venial sin involves a "partial loss of grace" from God. According to Catholic teaching, mortal sin requires the sacrament of penance (confession to a priest who pronounces sentence, that is, acts of penance the person must do to pay for his sin).
“Bless me Father, in this confession it has been (state the length of time) since my last confession. I accuse myself of the following sins: (mention your mortal and venial sins and the number of times committed).”
Upon finishing, say
“For these and all the sins of my past life, I am truly sorry.”
Then priest will advise, gives your penance and asks you to say the Act of Contrition Then wait and listen as the priest gives the absolution. The say
“Thank you, Father”
and leave the confessional and perform the penance given by the priest.
Act of Contrition
O my God, because you are so good.
I am very sorry that I have sinned against you;
and with your help I will try not to sin again.
