    Having trouble finding information about something you need to use for a story? Ask here.
    Know everything? Then please help the rest of us out. :]

    For example, I haven't been to confession in 238907869 years, but I need to know what the priest says after you get into the confessional. Anyone remember?

    If not, feel free to post a question of your own. :]

    And then when you tell him your sins, doesn't he tell you what you have to do to "purify yourself" ?

    E.G:

    "forgive me Father, for I have sinned."
    "confess your sins to me, child."
    "Father, I have cursed 6 times in the past week."
    "Wash your mouth out with holy water 6 times, only that way will you be clean"

    or something like that? >>

    It's okay. (:

    And can anyone tell me where I can find a good spellchecker to download? Or just Microsoft Word in general?

    All I have is WordPad, and that doesn't have spellcheck, nor is it as good as Word. :[

    Right. Online spell checks (for free!)

    1. Spellcheck.net
    2. Orangoo.com
    3. The Solution Cafe

    Hope those three are enough. Plus, if you have Mozilla Firefox, it tells you when you've got stuff spelled wrong. And Mibba has a spellcheck (up in the left top corner, in blue) that you can use too. :]

    It's the "I have sinned against you" one, I think...
    If I'm right, I know it.

    E.G:

    "forgive me Father, for I have sinned."
    "confess your sins to me, child."
    "Father, I have cursed 6 times in the past week."
    "Wash your mouth out with holy water 6 times, only that way will you be clean"

    or something like that? >>
    We're talking about Catholic churches, right?
    The way to be forgiven is normally through prayer - certain amout of Hail Mary's, Our Fathers, Glory Be...all those prayers. It all depends on what you've done, too.

    And the "I have sinned against you" is what you say. That's the Act of Contrition.

    My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong
    and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above
    all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more,
    and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and
    died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy.

    ^ That, though, is the Modern Day version. If you're a hard core Catholic this is what you say;

    O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my
    sins because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend
    Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly
    resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near
    occasions of sin.


    I haven't been to confession in a few years, so I forget exactly what the priest says in return. All I know is that he says something along the lines of "You're forgiven, my child. Save -enter amount and type of prayers-"

    What do you mean by old names ? I found this site with over 10,000 names on it so that might help.

    Yes, but I've only got wiki and an other site. If you need more info I'll look for more since I'm really into myths and that kind of stuff.

    And yes, I would beta for you random chapters and such. Just pm me if interested. Wait..I have to pm you anyway, I remember now, and I'll ask you about the beta thing then too.
