I suffer from scruples and have been told by several priests to go to Holy Communion no matter what.
I had a thought today which was more verging on disrespect (a bad/negative word without meaning) about the Eucharist than anything more serious. However I started obsessing about the thought and I did use the words purposefully in my head . However at this stage I had started to think that it was probably a venial sin but I wasn’t sure if it was mortal or venial.
I have been told that in the case of a scrupulous person if they do something that is not too serious while thinking it is a mortal sin that they cannot commit a mortal sin in this case as they do not have the ability to judge.
I really do not want to disobey the instructions I have received but am worried about receiving Communion.
