Q4: While I know that confession is an essential, powerful and healing sacrament, I have often dreaded going. I find that confessing my sins is uncomfortable and am always fearful that I will fail to confess everything. I do not think that I have fully perceived and experienced true nature of the sacrament. Can you shed some light on the sacrament of confession?
