If the priest says something that makes you feel guilty, the Holy Spirit will either heal that guilt or turn it into something constructive. Tip: I never go face to face if I can help it, so if you’re nervous about confessing to a priest, try confessing from behind the screen.
Among them, 27% of confessions included sexual acts with a parent or other family member, and 11% about incestuous relations with a sibling or cousin.
