I watched this video that Julia posted in Nov on confession; I was finally able to confess this week for the first time (officially) and even though I spent quite a bit of time reflecting beforehand I am now remembering sins which I need to confess that are definitely mortal sins. I feel a bit ashamed that I did not remember or confess these sins. I do not think that I should take part in communion this morning until I have confessed them but I am not sure. This has not been brought up in RCIA so I am wondering if my thinking is correct? My early life I was so very very lost. I pray that the Holy Spirit helps me to continue to remember these sins so that I might make Penance and receive the Lord's Mercy but most of all to identify and uproot my vice as Father Isaac speaks about in this video. After Confession and receiving the Eucharist this week I have a clarity of mind which I don't think I can honestly say I have ever experienced. When I received the Eucharist it was so sweet that I was taken back by it. I have received communion before, in sin, which I confessed. It was never like this.
