confession
Question from Aaron Ocello on 5/1/2005:

If i commited the sin of sexual relations in different instances is it enough to have said in the confessional that I commited "sexual sins" or rahter was there a need for each individual incident?

Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 5/1/2005:

You don't need to go into detail. Just be clear and precise:

"I committed a sexual sin alone five times." -- that is clear

"I committed fornication twice." -- that is clear

It's better to say things simply and clearly.
