One way might be to make an examination of conscience followed by saying the act of contrition. In this way we can remind ourselves of our own sins and the burden our Lord carried for us on the cross. We can also cultivate a longing for confession and gratitude for the gift of forgiveness and reconciliation we receive in that sacrament.
When Our Lord appeared to his disciples after his resurrection he showed them the marks of the nails our sins had caused. He also gave them the gift of peace. "Peace be with you," he said. Then he gave the sacrament of reconciliation. He breathed on the apostles and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; those whose sins you retain, they are retained."
Once the present situation begins to improve it will be possible to come to Mass and Holy Communion once again. Before we do that we should also make a resolution to come to confession as well. Our return to the Eucharist will be like another First Holy Communion day. We are blessed that we have this time of preparation for it.
The Fathers of the Oratory will make sure there is plenty of opportunity for confession when it becomes possible again. Meanwhile here is a download of the Guide to Confession which is always available at the doors of the confessionals in St Wilfrid's and St Joseph's.
