HOW ONE SHOULD TEACH THE UNEDUCATED TO CONFESS
- Q. WHAT IS CONFESSION?
- A. Confession has two parts:
First, a person admits his sin Second, a person receives absolution or forgiveness from the confessor, as if from God Himself, without doubting it, but believing firmly that his sins are forgiven by God in Heaven through it.
- Q. WHICH SINS SHOULD PEOPLE CONFESS?
- A. When speaking to God, we should plead guilty to all sins, even those we donít know about, just as we do in the ďOur Father,Ē but when speaking to the confessor, only the sins we know about, which we know about and feel in our hearts.
- Q. Which are these?
- A. Consider here your place in life according to the Ten Commandments.
Are you a father? A mother? A son? A daughter? A husband? A wife? A servant? Are you disobedient, unfaithful or lazy? Have you hurt anyone with your words or actions? Have you stolen, neglected your duty, let things go or injured someone?
