Sometimes, to tune in to confession and not worry that during
time of the sacrament you forget something, write sins on paper. In connection with
many ask this question: you can write sins on a piece of paper
papers and just give to the priest? Unique answer: No!

Как правильно call грехи на исповеди: с чего начать
confession and how to finish
Going to the priest, try to get out of my head the thoughts about
earthly and listen to your soul. Start a confession with the words:
�”Lord, sinned before You” and begin to list sins.
No need to list sins in detail. If you, for example,
something was stolen, you don’t need to tell the priest where, when and when
what circumstances it happened. Simply enough to say:
I sinned by theft.
However, it is not worthwhile to list sins completely dry. For example you
Come and say: “I have sinned with anger, irritation,
осуждением и т.д.» it тоже не совсем правильно. It will be better
say this: “I have sinned, Lord, with irritation towards my husband” or
�”Constantly condemn the neighbor.” The fact is that the priest during
confessions can give you advice on how to deal with this or that
by passion. It is these clarifications that will help him understand the reason.
You can finish the confession with the words “I repent, Lord! Save and
Have mercy on me a sinner! ”
