Classical Catechism Lesson 38

TermDefinition
What is Confession? Confession is the telling of our sins to a duly authorized priest, for the purpose of obtaining forgiveness.
What sins are we bound to confess? We are bound to confess all our mortal sins, but it is well also to confess our venial sins.
What are the chief qualities of a good confession? The chief qualities of a good confession are three: it must be humble, sincere, and entire.
When is our confession humble? Our confession is humble when we accuse ourselves of our sins, with a deep sense of shame and sorrow for having offended God.
When is our confession sincere? Our confession is sincere when we tell our sins honestly and truthfully, neither exaggerating nor excusing them.
When is our confession entire? Our confession is entire when we tell the number and kinds of our sins and the circumstances which change their nature.
What should we do if we cannot remember the number of our sins? If we cannot remember the number of our sins, we should tell the number as nearly as possible, and say how often we have sinned in a day, a week, or a month and how long the habit or practice has lasted.
Is our confession worthy if, without our fault, we forget to confess a mortal sin? If without our fault we forget to confess a mortal sin, our confession is worthy, and the sin is forgiven; but it must be told in confession if it again comes to our mind.
Is it a grievous offense willfully to conceal a mortal sin in confession? It is a grievous offense willfully to conceal a mortal sin in confession, because we thereby tell a lie to the Holy Ghost, and make our confession worthless
What must he do who has willfully concealed a mortal sin in confession? He who has willfully concealed a mortal sin in confession must not only confess it, but must also repeat all the sins he has committed since his last worthy confession.
