    I am being confirmed into the Church on Sunday.

    Before mass I have to make my first confession. I must admit I feel a little uneasy about this!

    Does any one have any advice for first confession?

    It okay to make a list.  You don’t have to go into great detail.  I was 56 when I had my first confession!  I used the 10 Commandments to organize and summarize them.  You probably aren’t going to be confessing anything the priest hasn’t heard before.  Plus the priest goes to confession too.  I read up on the order before I went and took a prayer of contrition with me to read.  I prayed to God before I went and asked Him to help me make a good confession as well as the Saints.

    Then the priest absolved me of all my sins since my baptism as an infant.  Wow!
