Confession
Question from John on 4/3/2006:

Regarding confession, is it necessary to mention the nature of our impure desires, for example, desires for adultry, impure acts alone, desire to watch bad movie, or read bad magazine, or is it adequate to say impure desires were commited so many times? Specifically, is it necessary to mention the specific impure desire if we intended to carry it out, but we didn't because of some reason that may have come up, such as too tired, got distracted, ect. How do we confess these sins?

God Bless, John

Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 4/4/2006:

Grave sins must be mentioned in kind and number. Venial sins are encouraged to be confessed.
