Hello my dear,
Sorry for the late reply, I am too busy these days!
This is a mistake many people do when they are on Confession. It’s not correct to hide things from your spiritual father. You see, you didn’t want to admit it because you were embarassed about that, but now you don’t feel good. If you had admit it, now you would feel really good, truly forgiven. It’s pointless to lie, because, after Confession we don’t feel clean and forgiven, but terribly.
However don’t panic. Make sure the next time you’ll go on Confession you’ll tell your spiritual father that the previous time you didn’t say the truth about that. You’ll feel much better. Don’t be afraid to humiliate yourself, that’s the point of Confession: to admit all our sins that make us suffer and be forgiven. God forgives everything we do, even the biggest sin if we have repent truly. Don’t be afraid of the reaction of your spiritual father: he’s not here to judge you or anything, you are talking to God.
I hope this helps! God bless you, Blessed Lent!
