If you can't find any sins, work harder at your examination!

St. Charles Borromeo went to Confession twice a day!

Of course if one has trouble finding out one's sins one could always ask a parent or associate. And then you are doing penance at the same time, ahead of time too as it were. Roll Eyes

"Marriage is good for those who are afraid to sleep alone at night"  Huh?
St. Jerome
It is curious, perhaps it's meant to be humorous.

Perhaps! Grin

Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin, all hope consists in confession; in confession there is a chance for mercy.

'If the man in the Gospel, who came to the marriage feast with out the nuptial garment, was condemned to darkness, what then should he expect who, admitted to the mystical banquet of the divine Lamb, neglects to adorn himself with the brilliant garb of virtues, and even presents himself impregnated with the fetid odors of impurity.'

Daughter, when you go to confession, to this fountain of my mercy, the blood and water which came forth from my heart always flows down upon your soul and ennobles it. Every time you go to confession, immerse yourself in my mercy, with great trust, so that I may pour the bounty of my grace upon your soul. When you approach the confessional know this, that I myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to my generosity. The torrents of grace inundate humble souls. The proud remain always in poverty and misery, because my grace turns away from them to humble souls.

Shin, this is what a priest said on the subject. I knew I had come across it in one of my books  but for days I could not remember which book .  That is why I raised the topic. I finally located it yesterday.
It is not that we have not sinned, no, of course not, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
 Romans 3:23
The point is that we are human and prone to forgetfulness. I used to write down everything  Embarrassed, but a priest discouraged me from this at the confessional; I understood from him that I was giving too much attention to the negatives, He advised me to make a thorough examination of conscience just before Confession and confess what I remember.
To come back to the topic, assuming we have no mortal sin to confess, this is what Father Leo.J. Trese wrote in his book "The Faith Explained" on the topic of Confession and I quote:
 
“ If we cannot remember even one deliberate venial sin since our last confession, then we can  re-confess some sin of our past life. It may be a sin that was confessed and forgiven long ago; but here and now we recall the sin and renew our heartfelt sorrow for it. Our past sin plus our present sorrow qualifies us for absolution and the graces of the Sacrament. In such an event, our confession would run something like this: “ Bless me father, for I have sinned. It is a week since my last confession. I do not remember having commited any sins since then, but I am sorry for any sins which I may have forgotten and for all the sins of my past life, especially for the sins of anger” ( for example)”

This sounds very familiar so it could be a repeat post. Still, here it is : Smiley
Do not give yourself over to sorrow, and do not distress yourself deliberately. A joyful heart is life itself, and rejoicing lengthens one’s life span. Indulge yourself and take comfort, and remove sorrow far fromyou, for sorrow has destroyed many and no advantage ever comes from it.
Sirach 30:21-23

'It is well to deny ourselves that which is permitted, in order to avoid more easily that which is not.'

St. Benedict

'Joyfulness of the heart, this is the life of a man, and a treasure without defect of holiness: and the joy of a man is long life. Have mercy on thine own soul, pleasing God, and refrain: and comfort thy heart in his holiness: and expel sorrow far from thee. For sorrow hath killed many, and there is no profit in it.'

Ecclesiasticus 30:23-25

This is from the original Douai.  Cheesy

To defend his purity, Saint Francis of Assisi rolled in the snow, Saint Benedict threw himself into a thornbush, Saint Bernard plunged into an icy pond...You... what have you done?

That is a good quote George. The Saint could also have added; "  ...and Joseph fled from an immoral woman..."  crucifix
