Los pecados son o mortales o veniales.
• Hay que confesar todos los mortales.
• Estos se confiesan diciendo la especie (el acto mismo, por ejemplo, no se dice pequé contra el primer mandamiento, sino comulgué en estado de pecado mortal), el número de veces cometido y los agravantes (por ejemplo, por una apuesta o para faltar al respeto, etc.)
• Para que un pecado sea mortal hay tres requisitos:
1. Materia grave
2. Total conocimiento
3. Pleno consentimiento

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father
before all ages.
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit
was incarnate
of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake
he was crucified
under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death
and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;

and in Jesus Christ,
His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell;
the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God,
the Father almighty;
from thence He shall come
to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body
and life everlasting.
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Dilige et fac quod vis.
your best friend.
