I make my Confession in this way:
1. I go into the confessional and knell.
2. I make the Sign of the Cross and say: "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned."
3. I say: "This is my first Confession"* (or, "It has been one week, or one month, since my last Confession").
4. I confess my sins.
5. I listen to what the priests tells me.
6. I say the Act of Contrition loud enough for the priest to hear me.
