I have been struggling hard against being scrupulous this week ever since I forget a couple instances of detraction. Please tell me if these 2 incedents constitute detraction or any sin for that matter. I am going to talk to the priest in confession tomorrow about being scrupulous.
1st situation: My mom asked me if a friend of mine had a job and I said he did but the job didn’t have enough hours for all the people and he was effectively layed off…
2nd situation A friend of mine was asking if a certain person we knew was at mass after mass becuase we were both there but didn’t see this person ( this church has 7 seprerate masses each weekend) this person told my friend he always came to this mass. I said I have seen him here before but maybe he only comes when you don’t … that was said jokingly but i still feel sort of bad now.
Please help me .
Thank you and may God Bless you
