It is not uncommon for many of us to acknowledge we are sinners but not 'recognize' those sins we have committed, especially when we look at the list of mortal sins (see below).
Both of these lists were compiled by Fr. Robert Altieri and have been given an imprimatur. They are an excellent guide to see beyond our own pride (hey, I'm very guilty of that!) and discern our failings. Approaching Confession is then refreshing. It also helps to remind ourselves that the priest acts as 'alter christus'. It's taken years of work to make this all click in my head.
