Catholics and Catholic historians, help!

I'm writing a story set in 17th Century Spain and am currently at a scene where the main character enters a church to confess to possibly committing adultery (it's supposed to remain ambiguous as to whether or not he actually does commit adultery), at the very least to coveting his neighbour's wife -- this is as retribution to discovering his own wife's infidelities.

With that background, I'm wondering if any of you would know how a typical scene of Confession would go, and what sort of language you would use. Even if it is modern day Catholicsm. Silly me, an atheist doesn't knwo the answer.
