Number of sins in Confession
#11
Thanks everyone. I'm asking because he was a visiting priest, and when I went to confess I told him that he'll have to forgive me, because I have a bad memory and can't always remember everything. He said it 'twas fine!

I say, "I do not recall how many times," or, "about X times". I mention it even if I don't remember because I want the priest to have all the information. Make his job easier.

When I read that, I thought "How dare you say a priest will have to forgive you!".

I misread the meaning there I think :)

I try to include numbers/frequently for all sins I confess. But sometimes, numbers are vague. Exactly what counts as "one" sin of imprudent speech?
