This has kept me away from receiving for about 10 years.
I have been meaning to talk to my Parish Priest about this but having found this wonderful forum maybe I can get some opinion’s thoughts and possibly solution’s.
The Eucharist problem is fairly straightforward.
I don’t think I’m good enough to receive it.
The confessional problem is a bit more complex.
This is just an example but say for instance I use a swear word, I can confess I use it, I may even be able to guess how many times but I also know that chances are I will use it again and again.
So in a nutshell,I commit a sin,I confess and I do it again, I know that before I go in so eventually I stopped going because I felt it hypocritical to confess knowing I am going to do the same thing over and over.
Maybe the act of confessing cleanses me but it hasn’t in the past.
Any idea’s,thoughts,solutions gratefully received.
