I was worried that I was in a state of mortal sin, so I ended up calling my parish to see if I can access confesson (FYI: I’m disabled and unable to use transportation to get to church since they are inaccessible, plus I’m avoiding getting infected with COVID-19).
And the result is this:
- The priest will not see me unless my health is in grave danger
- The priest will not take personal confessions nor come to my home to do it
- The priest will not administer Eucharist at home
- The priest will not take personal confessions but take public confessions at church, which I am unable to attend.
As my disability is capable of fluctuating in severity, I’m worried that I will suddenly die and end up in hell. I’ve already made a perfect act of contrition and I’m waiting until the COVID-19 cases slow down. I’m wearing a scapular since I am already enrolled, and I’m taking care of my health as much as I can.
What would you advise me to do in this time of spiritual darkness?
