“Many who confess their venial sins out of custom and concern for order but without thought of amendment remain burdened with them for their whole life and thus lose many spiritual benefits and advantages.”
-St. Francis de Sales
Do I exercise a “firm purpose of amendment” when I confess my venial sins? Do I truly intend to gain victory over those familiar sins with which I have grown so comfortable?
